February 14, 2005

[EAB Press - Burundi] The New Year has seen a number of events organised around the dioceses to encourage prayer for the country and to promote peace and reconciliation. Some of these have been ecumenical.

They have included marches for peace, and events like the football match in Matana between the civilian population and the military that included former rebels.

The referendum, that has been postponed twice, is now scheduled for 28th February.

Church leaders led prayers at the Unity Day celebrations on 5th February at which the President of Burundi encouraged people to put behind them the events of past years and move forward into a new future.
