Caritas Jordan
Celebrates the 10th Year Anniversary of the Volunteers Program

On Friday, August 31, 2012, His Beatitude Patriarch Fouad Twal patronized the celebratory holy mass that was performed on the occasion of 10 years of launching Caritas Jordan volunteers program that took place in the “Good Shepherd Church “at “Our Lady of Peace Centre.” Latin Bishop Maroun Lahham, Bishop Saleem Al Saiegh and a number of priests from different churches of Jordan, as well as a big number of volunteers and friends of Caritas from Jordan, Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon participated in the holy mass.

In his oration, the Patriarch commended Caritas blessed efforts and its distinguished impacts in the social, cultural and humanitarian work. He also underscored the efforts of those who are responsible for implementing this program as well as the workers who carried out the volunteers’ program activities that flourished during its 10 years.

“We are performing our prayers especially for Caritas that is celebrating its 10 anniversary of launching voluntary work. The program is still young, however the workers in it are giants in offering and doing a good work, which attracted the attention of countries, so that Caritas has become represented in the UN.” Says Patriarch Twal.

Mrs. Huda Al Muasher, Chairperson of Caritas Jordan expressed her satisfaction and thankfulness to Jordan Youth and their enthusiasm in doing social work and offering assistance. She also expressed her gratitude to the Church that is the caretaker and sponsor of Caritas activities and work.



From his part, Mr. Wael Suleiman, Caritas Jordan Executive Director, underscored the role of volunteering and its importance. He described the volunteer as a rock and yeast, a rock which Christianity is built on and can overcome difficulties and challenges, and yeast that is extended to build one Church, conveying a sublime message in our land.



The Choir of “ Yanbou Al Mahaba” participated in the holy mass producing exceptional hymns which are taken from its recent CD. After the mass, all went to have lunch and cut the cake.
