Light in Haifa
Posted: 17 Dec 2018

CNEWA was privileged this year to play a part in the renovation of an important church in Haifa, the Church of the Carmelite Sisters of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. The church marks the birthplace of the Discalced Carmelites and serves as a venue for local ceremonies and celebrations of the feasts of the order. It is also a place of solace and reflection for spiritual retreats as well as the site for weddings and baptisms for the local Christian community.

In October, CNEWA’s regional director in Jerusalem, Joseph Hazboun, attended a celebration for the consecration of the renovated church and altar.

Thanks to our donors, CNEWA provided funds to improve the interior lighting and sound system — both of which are designed to reduce significantly the consumption of electricity and improve the quality of worship in this important site in the Holy Land.
