[EAB Press - Burundi] The Cathedral Church of Holy Trinity in Bujumbura recently welcomed Rev. Canon Justin Welby, from UK, to a special service establishing a partnership with Coventry Cathedral’s Community of the Cross of Nails which is part of Coventry Cathedral’s international ministry of peace and reconciliation.

Canon Justin said: “The Community of the Cross of Nails will be greatly enriched by a partnership with this Cathedral. Your courage amidst suffering inspires and challenges us to pray, and to help where we can.”

Canon Justin presented a cross of nails to Holy Trinity on the instructions of the Bishop of Coventry, Rt. Revd. Colin Bennetts, and the Dean of Coventry Cathedral, Very Revd. John Irvine, as a sign of commitment to working together towards peace and reconciliation.

The Community has more than 200 centres in 60 countries, each working for reconciliation in their own communities.
