Morocco: Al Mowafaqa Institute Launched in Nation to Train 'Catholic and Protestant' Community Leaders

European Catholic and Protestant churches are recruiting new religious leaders for a recently-signed partnership providing university training in theology and human sciences in Morocco. "This is the first time that Catholic and Protestant students will take classes in Morocco, a Muslim country," said the Bishop of Rabat, Monsignor Vncent Landel. He is behind the partnership between the Al Mowafaqa Institute of Rabat, the Catholic Institute of Paris, and the University of Protestant Theology in Strasburg. Al Mowafaqa (Convergence) will open its doors in July.
