Czech Religious Groups Held a Prayer Assembly to Support Chinese Christians

Recently, the rejection of 70 Chinese Christians’ asylum applications in the Czech Republic has aroused the concerns of local people from different walks of life. Mikuláš Vymětal, the pastor of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren, launched a prayer assembly to call upon the government to grant asylum to those 70 Christians. On March 16, 2018, this activity was held in front of the Memorial to the Victims of Communism in Prague. At 6 p.m., about 100 representatives of different religions, including Christians, Catholics, Jews, and Muslims, participated in the event.
