Supporters of the Friends of the Holy Land, St William’s Parish, Sheffield, enjoyed a Palestinian evening which raised £600.

Friends of the Holy Land sPalestinian food and music were followed by a film which showed the difficulties that Christians endure in the Holy Land.

Thanks go to Fr John, to the people who helped prepare and assist with the event, and to those who came to the meal or gave donations.  Many people commented that it was a very enjoyable evening.

As the Israelis have withheld funding for Christian schools, the Friends of the Holy Land are now going to start paying school fees to ensure that Christian children will have access to a Christian education, as well as supporting Christian families in many other ways.
