The new years peace prayer was held in the Roman Catholic Church in Laiza, praying for peace and a chance to return to their homes and farms that have been occupied by the Tatmadaw. Roman catholic faith was introduced into Kachin communities through French Missionaries, who thought to uplift the status of religion, education and social life within Kachin society. Currently, about 15% of all Kachin are said to be Roman Catholic.
