Pastoral initiatives

The Solidarity with South Sudan Pastoral Team is based in the appropriately named “Good Shepherd Peace Centre” (GSPC), in Kit. The international, inter-congregational team that works at this Centre, is committed to organizing and implementing pastoral programs aimed at empowering South Sudanese people to build a more just and peaceful society.

Among its activities, the Good Shepherd Peace Centre in Kit offers retreats, on-going formation for priests, and training for catechists. Special attention is paid to the family, women, young people and children.

Trauma accompaniment has been an important aspect of pastoral work for many years. Solidarity with South Sudan provides expertise, workshops and follow-up to numerous groups throughout the country, preparing and empowering agents of continuity in this healing ministry.


A member of Solidarity, Father Mike Bassano (M.M.), has been caring for the approximately 37,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in the Malakal civil protection camp (POC) for years, bringing comfort, celebrating masses and animating the life of the Christian community through dance activities, choir, Bible study and retreats and days of reflection.
