We here at the Latin Seminary in Beit Jala receive a lot of support from all over the world. There is one group that is very dear to us, the Latin Patriarchal parish in Yonkers, New York, The Good Shepard. Father Faris Hatar is currently the Parish Priest for the Arabic community there. They have been continually supporting our seminarians for many years. Their central way of raising money is through a bake sale held at the parish every Sunday. The parishioners pitch in by baking all kinds of treats, especially kaek, an Arabic pastry, then offering it up for the bake sale. We know that they will continue their support for us as we will continue our prayers for them. We thank all of our supporters and pray that God blesses them all.
Happy Easter 2015
