Here's a interesting new apostlate: The Catholic Holy Land Communication Centre in Jerusalem


Per Spero News:


The new Holy Land Catholic Communications Centre based in Jerusalem hopes to provide information in five languages - English, Italian, French, Arabic, and Hebrew, according to FIDES.

The agency will provide news and information on the initiatives, life, and activity of the Catholic Church in the Holy Land. It will also serve as a centre for information, coordination and networking among the churches, parishes, and pastoral centers of the various Catholic rites that exist there.

The agency aims to contribute to the spread of reliable reports on the situations in the Holy Land, in response to the Church’s essential mission of announcing the truth.


For instance, I did not know that most Catholic churches in Palestine and Jordan are keeping the same liturgical calendar as the eastern Churches and celebrated Easter last Sunday! From the website, dated April 25:

Most Catholic parishes in Palestine and Jordan are celebrating the Holy Week. The date coincides with that of the Oriental Churches that follow the Julian calendar. The choice to celebrate together with the Oriental Churches has been made to underline the importance of the journey towards full communion.

The website has a brief introduction to each the various Churches that are in communion with Rome: Armenian, Greek Catholic, Maronite, Syrian Catholic, Caldean, and has a fascinating page on Arabic-speaking saints of the Holy Land.

One - ABUNA YAAQUB EL-HADDAD - will be beatified June 22.

The site has pictures, videos, and some valuable links to various Catholic churches and institutions in the Holy Land. It is worth adding to your blogroll.
