Fr. Lasuba on the Conflict/Vote in the Sudan

The Peace and Justice Club will present Father John Lasuba, who will give a presentation about the unrest in the Sudan at 7 p.m. on February 17th in the Presidents Lounge. Father Lasuba lost his father and his five brothers to war in Sudan. He was separated from his two sisters when he moved to the United States in 2004. Now he ministers to 22 new Sudanese families at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in downtown Rochester.

I think this is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about unrest in another part of the world. Since Fr. Lasuba will be speaking from personal experience, students will have a better understanding of the seriousness of the situation. He will also be addressing the recent secession that was voted on January 9, 2010. We would greatly appreciate it if you could spread this information on to your students. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email me at bmcoff07. Thank you so much.
