The crisis off the coast of Somalia has become personal for the Africa Faith and Justice Network. On February 18th, 2011 Scott and Jean Adams, members of St. Monica’s Parish in California, were captured by Somali pirates and were killed on February 22, 2011. St. Monica’s Parish is an institutional member of the Africa Faith and Justice Network. They have a very engaging partnership with Holy Cross Catholic Church, located in the Dandora district, on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. Also, our board member, Mr. Trevor Rodrigues, is a parishoner of St. Monica’s. We join St. Monica’s parishoners, friends and family of the Adams and all people of good will as we pray for Scott and Jean and many others caught in the violence of our world today. May they rest in peace.
Fr. Rocco Puopolo, s.x.
