Zimbabwe's bishops say country more polarized than before elections

 | 

Zimbabwe is more polarized now than it was before this year's general elections, said the country's bishops.

"The political fault lines and their impact on all aspects of the lives of Zimbabweans are set not only to deepen, but also to stand in the way of progress and ultimately in the way of peace," the Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops' Conference said in a pastoral letter Tuesday.

"We note with apprehension that ... there are no visible prospects for improvement in the spheres of life in Zimbabwe that cry for restoration to give people hope for a better life," the bishops said.

Collaborative effort transforms N.J. parish into GreenFaith sanctuary

As you pass by the Church of the Presentation, in Upper Saddle River, N.J., you’ll notice a not-so-ordinary feature glimmering in the sunlight on top of its roof.

“The solar panels make the place look more attractive,” opines Fr. Bob Stagg, the pastor.

While an outward sign of the parish’s commitment to energy conservation and fiscal responsibility, it serves as just one piece of an integrative and intentional effort to promote environmental stewardship across its countless ministries and 4,000 families.
