Cardinal Vincent Nichols speaks to Friends of the Holy Land

Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, has presented FHL with a cheque for £85,000 to support projects helping Christians in the Holy Land.  The money was raised through the generosity of the parishioners in the Archdioceses of Liverpool, Birmingham and Westminster.  Click here to watch the video and hear the background to this story.

Don’t forget the Holy Hour or Hour of Prayer being promoted by Bishops at the request of FHL in Roman Catholic and Anglican parishes across the country at 3-4pm on Sunday 25 May, to coincide with the time Pope Francis meets Christian families in Bethlehem.  Contact the FHL for more information.
