The following notification was prepared by Fr Robert McCabe –

News reports from Iraq (and many other parts of the Middle East) are either too shocking to watch in online videos or not explicit enough in highlighting the trauma of Christian populations or minority groups in the region.

Many have left their crops, vehicles, schools, clothing, bedding, homes and parishes and have no resources. They do not seem to be featuring at all in the news cycle our mainstream media.

I would be grateful if you can consider the urgency of supporting Christians and other minorities in Iraq who are being assisted in (relatively) safer parishes to which they have fled.
