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.
