Dec. 23, 2012

by Joel Elowsky

We were pleased to hear recently that our good friend and colleague Archbishop John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan of Abuja, Nigeria was appointed a cardinal by Benedict XVI recently. Archbishop Onaiyekan had chaired our seminar in Accra on Christian engagement with Muslims back in the Summer of 2011. We rejoice with him in this honor and pray God's continued blessings on his ministry for Africa and the world. For the Reuter's story regard the appointment, you can follow the link here.
