Italian archdiocese encourages support for priests in Iraq

.- The Pastoral Office for Migrants of the Archdiocese of Turin said this week that the five-year long campaign called, “I have a new friend, an Iraqi Chaldean priest,” has been a success, and it encouraged the faithful to continue supporting the Christian community in Iraq.

“The end of this campaign does not mean we will forget about our Iraqi brothers, and therefore the Pastoral Office for Migrants of the Archdiocese of Turin invites everyone to continue supporting the Iraqi Christian community and to keep them in your prayers and thoughts,” the Office said.

“Thanks to the generosity of many friends….we have not only been able to provide economic support to our brothers but also show them they are not forgotten,” officials said in a statement.

The campaign lasted for five years and provided economic assistance to ten young priests in Baghdad.
