CNA and Franciscan Foundation launch effort to keep Christians in the Holy Land

.- Although Christians have been present in the Holy Land for thousands of years, their presence is dwindling quickly due to economic and other factors. In order to help those Christians who still remain in the land of Jesus, CNA and the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land are launching a joint effort to ensure that the Christian presence will continue in the years to come.

The Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land is a group that was created in 1998 to help stem the tide of Christians leaving the Holy Land by providing much needed programs in the fields of education, employment, and housing.

Funding these initiatives remains an ongoing project, and so the Franciscan created the "Memorial Hall" at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem to help raise the much needed funding.

Through this project, Christians from around the world will not only be able to leave a lasting legacy at the Church of the Nativity but more importantly, will be giving those Christians an opportunity of renewed hope and desire to stay in the Holy Land.

Realizing the importance of helping the Mother Church of Christianity, CNA has agreed to help by spreading the word about the Memorial Hall Project.
