The recent Annuario Pontificio lists 25 million Catholics out of 160 million the largest Catholic population in Africa. In a more difficult chapter, in the past decade, some 3,000 people have been killed in inter-ethnic and inter-religious violence.

Host Mark Riedemann interviews Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama of Jos, Nigeria about these challenges and how the Church is working in this climate of distrust and violence.
