Good Shepard Peace Centre Kit
The project of the combined Catholic Religious in South Sudan (RSASS) to build a centre for human, pastoral and spiritual formation, peace building and trauma healing for South Sudanese at Kit near Juba, was launched officially by Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro on 11th October 2014.
On Saturday, 15thOctober, 2016, this centre, now named the ‘Good Shepherd Peace Centre’ was officially blessed and opened by the Apostolic Nuncio to South Sudan, Archbishop Charles Balvo, assisted by the Archbishop of Juba, three other Bishops, an apostolic administrator and a large number of Diocesan and Religious priests. A crowd or more than 800 people, including several ambassadors and local dignitaries, gathered for this joyful occasion.
This project included; forty, en-suite bedrooms each capable of accommodating two beds plus a youth hostel that can accommodate sixty people. With spacious conference and dining rooms, a central chapel and many seminar rooms and outdoor tukuls, on a peaceful site near the Kit river, it is expected that this quality, purpose-built facility will be a very positive force in the search for peace in South Sudan. The simple but profound message above the chapel entrance says: ‘Be at Peace’.
