The Church Elsewhere


What does it mean to be a Christian in Uganda, Syria or Turkey? The Church Elsewhere is the story of a journey around the world, on the trail of a Church far removed from the dome of St. Peter, one that is sustained by anonymous donors. From Father Dall'Oglio’s Syria to the girls of Sister Rachele kidnapped by guerrillas in Uganda, to the fight against poverty in Ethiopia by Sister Laura, to the martyrdom of Christians in Pakistan and Turkey. These are stories from the frontier, stories of men and women who have chosen a radical life in the name of their faith.
