Update – Christians in Iraq

 

Both Pope Francis and our Bishop Douglas Crosby continue appeals for peace in the middle east and solidarity with the Christians of Northern Iraq.   Christians have been driven from their homes and are in urgent need of Aid.   Recently, Cardinal Filoni, who was sent as the Pope’s representative to Iraq returned and met with Pope Francis.

 

 An interview with Cardinal Filoni is available in Spanish.

 

Bishop Crosby has designated October 4th, the Feast of St. Francis as a day for prayer peace in the diocese of Hamilton.  More news will be available soon how we will celebrate this day at St. Michael’s
