SRI LANKA APPEAL
The explosions that devastated three churches, killing 259 and physically injuring many more, were part of the biggest attack on Christians in recent times.
As Sri Lanka’s Christian community reeled from the atrocity – which Daesh (ISIS) claimed responsibility for – ACN supported those caught up in the violence, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with them in their pain.
Father Nishantha Cooray, a Franciscan who ministered to the injured and dying following the atrocity, shared his testimony at recent ACN events. He said: “Our people need healing. We are accompanying them through their pain.”
