Support Friends of the Holy Land this Christmas says Archbishop Peter Smith, Apostolic Administrator

FHL Grotto at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.jpgArchbishop Peter Smith has endorsed a request from Friends of the Holy Land (FHL) that parishes donate their crib box collections to help our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land, specifically in and around Bethlehem and the Holy Family Parish in Gaza.

Every penny collected is distributed by FHL to named families in the greatest need to help them with their day to day living, to supply medicines and fund operations (there is no social service in this area), to repair houses of Christian families damaged in Gaza from the recent war and to support Christian children at the parish school with a special programme to overcome the trauma of the recent conflict.

For more information on the work of FHL, please visit their website FHL is an ecumenical and non-political charity seeking to maintain a Christian presence in the Holy Land. Thank you for your generosity.
