Millions of people, Christians and Muslims alike, have been forced to leave their homes because of violent conflict and extremism. For Christians — mostly in Iraq and Syria — increasing harassment, attacks and killings have put extra pressure on this very fragile community.
The survival of Christians in the Middle East is at risk, and if these tendencies persist, most of them will leave the region for good.
Pope Francis is calling on Catholics everywhere to pray for peace and to accompany Christians in the Middle East. I invite you to join him through CNEWA!
With your help, we can support courageous and committed bishops, priests, religious and lay people. Through loving service, they are bringing hope to the poor, sick, marginalized and refugees, regardless of religion.
Join with the Holy Father through prayer and please make a generous gift to Catholic Near East Welfare Association today.
