Remembering Bethlehem this Christmas

2nd Annual
Christmas Procession for Bethlehem
Saturday, December 22, 2007

Bethlehem Chapel of the National Cathedral
3101 Wisconsin Ave. N.W., Washington, DC

10:00 AM Worship Service
Planned joint service simulcast with the people of Bethlehem

Procession will follow service; starting at 10:30 AM on Woodley Road.

Mary and Joseph, with donkey, will lead the procession.

Bethlehem, the city of Jesus' birth, is under occupation. All its residents, including Palestinian Christians, are suffering.

Behind the wall that separates neighbor from neighbor, patient from hospital, student from school and farmer from land, Palestinian Christians will continue to bear witness to their faith this Christmas, as they have done for generations. Let us join our voices with theirs in seeking and offering hope for a better future.

Sponsored by the Ad Hoc Committee for Bethlehem,
the Washington Interfaith Alliance for Middle East Peace
and Sharing Jerusalem
