The story of a member of Rev. Diab's congregation who was seized in her home in a night-time raid by the Israeli military in April and remains detained without charge.

SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 10:10 A.M.–10:50 A.M., in Bloedel Hall and on Zoom

Fr. Fadi Diab, an Anglican priest at St. Andrew’s in Ramallah, Palestine, will join us once again on Sunday morning via Zoom to share a report of life in the West Bank in these extremely difficult times. Last year, he preached at Saint Mark’s in July, and then conducted a similar hybrid forum in December from his home in Ramallah after the war in Gaza began. He and Dean Thomason have remained in communication, and Saint Mark’s has continued to offer financial support to St. Andrew’s school and orphanage.

We continue to pray for peace and for all devastated by the violence, and this partnership with our Christian siblings in the Holy Land is a tangible sign of our commitment to “strive for justice and peace, and to respect the dignity of every human being.”
