Christians of the Holy Land Religious Goods Sale

On the weekend of September 9/10, 2017 we welcome our guest speaker from Bethlehem. Mr. Rami Qumsieh, KHS who will speak at all the Masses on the topic of the Christian identity of our Holy Land. Rami is an accomplished speaker having presented at hundreds of parishes. He is also a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, a Papal Order. The Christian situation in the Holy Land is dire. What used to be a strong and vibrant 30% of the population has dropped down below 2%. There are several factors involved, not the least of which is economics. Traditionally, the Christian community relied on the services offered for pilgrims as a main source of income for the community, who in turn conduct commerce with each other. Olive wood items/carvings represent the only tangible product they produce and can export. Christians of the Holy Land graciously asks your support through conscience prayers and the purchase of these special religious art pieces. Items range in price from $5 to a few hundred and include rosaries, crosses, icons and statues. Proceeds of the sales generate much needed employment and cash flow for our Christian community in Bethlehem. These beautiful items will strengthen your faith, and serve as wonderful gifts for others. Think of your family, friends and yourself, and be as generous as God is to you. Checks, cash and credit cards will be accepted. God Bless you.
