A priest serving in the Holy Land...
Fr. Firas Aridah is the parish priest of St. Joseph's in Jifna, which is located in the central West Bank, about fourteen miles north of Jerusalem. During this past Lent, the students here at the academy raised $5,140.00 for St. Joseph's School, as a sign of our love and support for our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land.
Fr. Aridah is a faithful Catholic priest, and he raises his voice on behalf of justice for the Christians who live there in such difficult circumstances. Here is a link to a brief video by Fr. Aridah.
