[Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil] In a pastoral letter about the national context issued on 14 May, the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil (IEAB) has pledged to pray and work for a more just society.

The letter highlights the “historical evil” of corruption as a particular concern in both the public and private spheres in Brazil and commits the bishops to take steps to tackle corruption and promote transparency.

The bishops lift up attempts to reduce the age of criminal responsibility as worrisome, echoing an earlier message from IEAB youth on the matter.

The House of Bishops also state that they intend to support efforts to bring about a Referendum on Political Reform.
