Amman School Graduation
This August, students from our Iraqi community in Jordan graduated from ‘The Latin School’. It was a truly wonderful occasion which was filled with prayer, fellowship and celebration. The Jerusalem MERIT team were so touched by the songs and speeches given by the children, many of whom were with Canon White when he was based in Baghdad.
It was also an honour to be joined by special guest, Bishop William Shomali. It was wonderful for him to witness the hard work which has gone into helping the displaced Iraqi-christian community in Jordan. We look forward to working closely with His Excellency in the future as we seek to cater for the ever increasing needs of our Iraqi people.
We would like to offer a special thank you to our Middle Eastern Director, Fr Khalil Jaar. His devotion to the Iraqi refugee community in Jordan is truly remarkable and we thank him for organising this event. Finally, our ambassador Canon White would like to thank all of the donors who have faithfully supported these children over the years. We could not have done it without you!
