The CNEWA Connection

CNEWA has been forming church leaders in the Middle East for generations. As the emigration of Christians from the region escalates, we have empowered more lay people to serve as catechists and teachers so as to carry on the faith.

Ra’ed Bahou, CNEWA’s regional director in Amman, explained how our partnerships with priests and religious make this possible:

“Every year, we work with our partners in developing and supporting their formation programs and activities … as well as youth meetings, gatherings and activities. Other training sessions concentrate on enriching the team leaders with various educational and counseling techniques, and ethical and recreational activities linked to the faith.”

Pope Benedict XVI urged Middle Eastern Christians to “be constantly reborn … to become a place of formation in faith and prayer, a seedbed of vocations, the natural school of virtues and ethical values, and the primary living cell of society,” wherever they may be.

CNEWA is proud to be a part of that effort. To assist us, call: 1-800-442-6392 (United States) or 1-866-322-4441 (Canada).
