[EAB Press - Burundi] § Thousands of former refugees in Tanzania continue to return especially to the southern diocese of Makamba. There are many challenges as the Church continues to assist with repatriation.
§ The Theological Education by Extension (T.E.E.) seminar held in September brought together those responsible for the programme in each diocese. We are grateful to Gerard Florigny, from Mauritius, who helped in an evaluation of the programme, and shared experiences of the programme that he co-ordinates.
§ “Living positively with HIV/AIDS” was the title of the recent M.U. seminar. It provided an opportunity to consider various moral and theological issues. Participants from each diocese were ably assisted by Dr. Francoise Ndayishimiye (from SEP/CNLS – a government department) to understand the nature of HIV, and to discuss the implications of its spread and other related issues.
