Students who wish to become involved in Catholic ministry may benefit from enrolling at Iona College. Officials from the school announced in a press release that Catholic Relief Services (CRS) requested that its Office of Campus Ministries get its students involved in the Sudan Ambassadors program.
CRS is aiming to raise awareness about the violence that occurs as a result of political unrest in Sudan. In the past, five Iona Campus Ministry students were chosen as Sudan Ambassadors. Their mission was to help carry out the organization's mission of peace, and educate students through a variety of activities.
"Now more than ever, Sudan needs the support of the international community, especially the U.S., to prevent another civil war and to build a lasting peace," said Carl Procario-Foley, director of the Iona Center for Campus Ministries.
He added that "as a college in the Catholic and Christian Brothers traditions, Iona prizes the values of peace and social justice that are so essential to its mission."
According to Foley, both the CRS and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops believe that peace is possible in Sudan.
