"The Orthodox Church invites all people to freedom and love" - About the first Orthodox Christians in the Central African Republic


 
Map from here

In the Central African Republic there are very few Orthodox Christians. In 2008 some were baptized and they had three priests (or only one). We do not know what their present situation is.
The Central African Republic, like so many other countries in our troubled, beloved Africa, is tormented by poverty and violence. What happened to the Orthodox Christians our brothers who live there? I would like to find out.
The Orthodox Church, the ancient, original church founded by Jesus Christ, invites all people to freedom and love. She invites all people to become holy, just as Jesus Christ is holy, as also are thousands of Orthodox Christians (men and women) throughout time.
We pray that Jesus Christ, the God of Love, will protect and bless the Orthodox Church in that country, as well as all its people.
The Orthodox Church of the Central African Republic belongs to the jurisdiction of the Orthodox Metropolis of Cameroon, which is struggling as best it can to help the people of these countries.
