Silver Spring, MD–Facing imminent danger, the leader of the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Sienna in Mosul, Iraq has called her sisters throughout Iraq to a time of intense prayer and retreat to beg God for the protection of the Iraqi people, especially the minority Christian community.
The Iraqi Christian community has steadily declined from approximately 1.3 million in 2003 to less than 300,000 today. Recent statements from Christian leaders have indicated that it is unlikely there are any Christians remaining in Mosul today.
The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) in the United States calls upon people of all denominations in the world community to join the Iraqi Sisters in a moment of prayer on Thursday, June 19 at 6 PM (in your time zone) to pray for an end to the violence and the protection of minority Christians in Iraq…
One thought on “IRAQ: LCWR calls upon people to join Iraqi Sisters in prayer today”
We have been praying for our sisters in Iraq. We understand their situation as we (Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, Nigeria) live in the northern Nigeria too. The Lord will deliver us all and grant us peace. Amen.
