printable version

The meeting of interreligious dialogue and prayer for peace "Thirst for Peace" took place in Kampala, Uganda, just a month after the meeting of Assisi 2016. Many yong people, students from high schools and universities attended the event.


In a country like Uganda, the meeting organized by the Community of Sant'Egidio is an important step on the path of ecumenism: together with the Catholic bishop Baharagate there were also representatives of the Protestant Churches.

After the reading of the speeches delivered by Pope Francis, Andrea Riccardi and other religious leaders in Assisi, the representatives of the religions signed the appeal for peace.
