A Catholic charity serving our suffering and persecuted brothers and sisters around the world since 1947

Help Young Religious Cope with Trauma in a Conflict Region

The Sisters of Saint Anne are a congregation whose formation house is just one mile from the area where the fighting is raging. Founded in Italy in the nineteenth century, the Sisters are dedicated to educating and supporting poor and disadvantaged children and young people. Now, there is “a prevailing atmosphere of fear,” says Sister Pamela Bongben, who runs the formation house.
The congregation is proposing to offer them a two-week workshop in which they will learn how to deal with these experiences and cope with the situation without coming to any great harm. The objective is to inspire new confidence in them and help them to overcome the lingering sense of fear.
