Dear Brother Knight,
The Saint John Paul II National Shrine is honored to participate in a Week of Awareness for Persecuted Christians which will take place from November 26 – December 2.
As part of this special week, we invite you to join us on the evening of November 28 at 6:00 p.m. for a special Mass that will be celebrated for the victims of the genocide being perpetrated by ISIS. The liturgy will be celebrated by the Most Reverend Bashar Warda, the Chaldean Archbishop of Erbil, Iraq, in the language of Christ and according to the rite of the Chaldean Catholic Church.
We invite all the faithful to participate in this very special liturgy. A light reception will follow.
