Christians Say Christmas 'Unique', Pray for South Sudan Unity

From Sudan-

Religious Leaders and Christians have described this years' Christmas as unique as it is the first South Sudan is celebrating as an independent country.This follows the declaration of South Sudan as a separate country from Sudan in July.

The Dean of All Saints Cathedral Rev. Fraser Yugu said that this year's Christmas was far much different from other years with huge church attendance by Christian followers, including returnees from different countries after the country won its independence from the North.The Rev. Yugu also said that the celebrations were peaceful with no cases of violence registered."Last years' Christmas attendance was poor but this year, more than three thousand people prayed at All Saints Cathedral and it was a very colorful Christmas celebration" he told The Citizen yesterday at the Church premises.
