The News Service of the Comboni Missionaries – North American Province (NAP)
Comboni Press Network (CPN) newsletter provides access to information on global issues from Church and Mission-related sources. Our focus is on Justice and Peace issues, and on how the U.S. policies affect the Third World countries.

Our newsletter this month focuses on Black History Month/Slavery Today as well as Climate Change. Also, an update on gun violence and an action on “real” immigration reform.
At the U.N., the Commission on Social Development will meet, starting February 5. Bishop Max Macram Gassis will visit the U.S. this month, including a stop in Cincinnati, February 15-17. He’ll give a talk about his work in Sudan, that will be open to the public on the evening of the 15th. It’s also the 30th anniversary of the Africa Faith & Justice Network’s founding and three of us JP activists will attend the conference (March 1-3) at Notre Dame in Indiana. Later in March, Fr. Pezzi will represent the Comboni Missionaries in North America at the World Social Forum in Tunis, Tunisia.
s usual, the newsletter is packed with a variety of resources including articles, reports and videos. Something for everyone, I hope! You can find it online at under JPIC.
