For several years, CNEWA has been fortunate to be in partnership with a priest in Atlanta, Georgia — Msgr. Richard Lopez, whose heart grew big for the Middle East after he taught Chaldean students at St. Pius X Catholic High School.
Over the course of the last two years, Msgr. Lopez has traveled from parish to parish across the Archdiocese of Atlanta to share stories of people living the Middle East affected by violence and war — and he’s been promoting the good work CNEWA makes possible through the generosity and love of our donors.
Through his efforts, CNEWA has raised over $40,000 to help our partners in places such as Iraq where the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, beloved by Msgr. Lopez, have stood by the people, offering education and hope. Now, Msgr. Lopez wants to take that message to a wider audience with a video that can be shared on social media, inviting people to be in prayer, to share the message, and to support this important work.
Watch the video above — and please visit this page (old/broken link: https://cnewa.org/lopez.aspx) to help continue this mission and support our suffering brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
On behalf of Msgr. Lopez and so many others: thank you!
