CHRISTIANS OF SYRIA: CELEBRATING FAITH AND COURAGE
Meet the Survivors!
Presentation of testimonies followed by a reception.
We request the pleasure of your company to celebrate the faith and courage of those who have made it possible to continue supplying material and spiritual sustenance to our brothers and sisters in Homs, Tartus, Marmarita, Aleppo, Damascus and many other places during the worst of the armed conflict in Syria.
We are honoured to host Sister Annie Demerijan (Sisters of Jesus and Mary), and Sister Fida Chaya (Sisters of Charity of Sainte-Jeanne-Antide-Thouret).
They are among the hundreds of women and men from the Church who never left their charges even amid the worst violence, as they “forgot themselves” in order to provide shelter, food, basic medical care and education for the most vulnerable.
They will share with us their testimony of life in the Chapel for Europe.
