St Patrick's Catholic Church
Christians in the Middle East – A Call to Action.
Some of the oldest Christian communities are fleeing their homes in Iraq for safety outside of ISIS controlled territory. ISIS have now asked all Christians to either convert to Islam or pay a special tax to continue to practice their faith. These communities are in a desperate situation and need your help. Here’s what you can do:
- Pray - Please try and spend some extra time in prayer remembering these communities. St Patrick’s is open all day with Adoration from 7-8am and from after the lunchtime Mass until 6pm.
- Donate - A number of charities will be able to help these communities. One of these is Aid to the Church in Need. Find out more >>>
- Raise awareness - Please raise awareness on social media – it’s very important to raise awareness of the plight of Christians in the Middle East.
