Olive Wood from Bethlehem
In the entry across from the sacristy after all masses
We are having olive wood carvings available to purchase after all masses this weekend. The proceeds are to support Christian Catholic families in the Holy Land since it is the major source of income for them there. More than 75 families in Bethlehem Hand carved these items. They are very beautiful and unique items(Nativities, Crucifixes, Rosaries, Statues). The Christian population has dropped from 22% to less than 2% in the past two decades. And this is a way to support them staying there. Thank you for your help and support.
