Thursday, July 31st
We will observe his feast at the 5:30 PM Mass today with prayers from the Mass of St. Ignatius.
After all Masses on Saturday, August 16th & Sunday, August 17th
Representatives from Catholic Bethlehem Christian Families will be selling religious articles carved from olivewood in the Narthex after Masses on Saturday, August 16th and Sunday, August 17th.
Sixty years ago these families made up 18% of the population in Israel. Today they comprise less than 2%.
All proceeds will be sent back to these artisan Christians whose source of living in the Holy Land is selling their handmade carvings.
