Our World
(from Catholic Near East Spring 1989)

40 Years of Service
Posted: 01 Mar 1989

In 1989 the Pontifical Mission for Palestine marks its 40th anniversary of serving those displaced by the division of Palestine. The humanitarian efforts of successive pontiffs since 1949 are estimated to have involved more than $200 million in material aid to the needy of the area. A future issue of Catholic Near East will be devoted to a review of the work of the Pontifical Mission.
