Church on the ball

With the focus on South Africa during the June 11-July 11 World Cup soccer tournament there, the country’s bishops are highlighting efforts of the local Catholic Church in a video  called “Church on the Ball.”  The video portrays the church’s efforts in responding to HIV/AIDs, caring for orphans, migrants and refugees and trying to prevent human trafficking. The site also includes plenty of soccer news with Catholic angles such as a World Cup prayer, report of a stadium blessing and news of a parish welcoming an onslaught of soccer fans.
