Your Justice & Peace Group will shortly be inviting you to send a card (or maybe more than
one) to a Christian parish in the Holy Land. You may well be aware of the growing pressure
Christians in the area are under, and our support means a great deal to them; some parishes
have displayed the cards in their churches. We are launching this a little earlier this year so
that they should arrive in good time for Easter, but as usual we ask you to return them to
church so that they can be sent to the Latin Patriarch in Jerusalem for redistribution. Please
take a copy of the Arabic greeting to include in your envelope and include your contact
details if you'd like to. There will be a box at the back of church for the cards. (if you want
to leave a small contribution towards the postage, that would be welcome too.) Thank you.
