Spotlight on CNEWA in the Middle East

In 2010, CNEWA led a two-part immersion program to the Middle East. Funded in part by a grant from the Catholic Communication Campaign of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the program included visits to Jordan, Palestine and Israel from 16 to 25 September, and Lebanon from 4 to 12 November. The following links feature the stories that have been published by participating journalists thus far.
