Many of you remember our parish’s 15 year participation in the Children’s Friendship Project for Northern Ireland which had parish families hosting a Protestant and Catholic teenager for a few weeks in July. That program has been lauded by civic and religious leaders for making a major contribution to peace in Northern Ireland.
Our parish is now participating in a similar program to help bring peace to the troubled island of Cyprus which has been divided by a United Nations border since its civil war in 1974. We ask that you consider hosting a Greek teen and a Turkish teen in your home for 2 or 4 weeks this July.
