A Communion-wide call to pray for the crisis-torn country of Burundi and the role that the Anglican Church of Burundi plays in in bringing peace and reconciliation has been issued. The call to pray – from Holy Week and through the Easter season – is being backed by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. The Archbishop of Burundi, Bernard Ntahoturi, has said that the local church has been strengthened by the prayers of Anglicans and other Christians.
