Getting a first-hand look at the work of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association
One of the responsibilities – it’s actually a privilege – of being the Archbishop of New York is to serve as the Chairman of the Board of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association,
a papal agency for humanitarian and pastoral support.
This week I am in Jordan, along with Bishop William Murphy, getting a first-hand look at the work that CNEWA is doing here.
Deacon Greg Kendra has a blog post along with a few photos of our visit. You might want to take a look. I’ll pass along any updates.
I am extraordinarily proud of the work CNEWA is doing, but there is so much more that needs to be done. Please keep all those who support CNEWA in your prayers.
