Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018, from 10 am to 12 noon, Catholic Women Religious in Nigeria held a nationwide day of prayer and fasting to uphold the sacredness of life. The event, a result of a recent AFJN advocacy workshop for the Nigerian Conference of Major Superiors of Women, is the first ever nationwide gathering organized by women religious in Nigeria in the public square. Members of Catholic Women Organization, other Christians and Muslims joined the sisters in the public square to prayer and call attention of the government to the widespread senseless bloodshed, kidnappings, human trafficking, violence and mistrust between communities that threaten the very fabric of communal life.
