Greetings from Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport. I’m about to depart for Lebanon, where I’ll be accompanying CNEWA’s president Msgr. John E. Kozar on a pastoral visit, along with my colleague Philip Eubanks. We’ll be visiting a number of programs and projects that CNEWA supports, including a school in Beirut for Iraqi refugees, a Melkite seminary where a new generation of priests is being trained to minister to the poor and needy, and a school in the Bekaa Valley for Syrian students.

Philip and I will be posting updates daily here on the blog, as well as on CNEWA’s Facebook and Instagram pages. We invite you to join us digitally as we see firsthand how CNEWA and our donors, through the local church are bringing the gift of hope to children and families who might otherwise have none. It’s an opportunity we’re blessed to have, and blessed to share.
