Patriarch Twal visiting London

Aid to the Church in Need are welcoming His Beatitude, Patriarch Fouad Twal of Jerusalem next Tuesday 8th September 1009. After celebrating and preaching at the 5.30pm Mass at Westminster Cathedral, the Patriarch will be giving a speech in Westminster Cathedral Hall. Drinks, canapés and other light refreshments will be available and entry is free of charge.

His Beatitude has recently been encouraged by the visit of Pope Benedict to the Holy Land; nevertheless, the declining Christian population in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, caused principally by emigration, has posed considerable problems for the Church's work in the region.
