Christmas Mass

 

 

On Christmas evening 1951, the Israeli army destroyed the village of Iqrit, except the Church, since that day the Christmas of Iqrit became a memorial day of the village demolition.

On Christmas this year, the people of Iqrit prayed in the old Church of their village, 66 years after their displacement. Fr. Suheel Khoury prayed for justice and peace. After the Mass, the community members took part in a play back performance in which they recalled their personal and collective memories.
