Sisters for Sisters: Religious Congregations affected and infected by AIDS
Sr Alison Munro, OP, SACBC AIDS Office, Pretoria.
The time in which we find ourselves in Southern Africa today is a time of profound challenge to the Church. AIDS has impacted on every level of society, every class of people, professional as well as the unemployed, people with a high profile and those who live in desperate poverty. The Churchitself has AIDS, if by the Church we understand “the people of God, the body of Christ”. It smembers, clerical, religious and lay are both infected and affected.
