Prayer Vigil in Support of Jerusalem Bishop Suheil Dawani
The Companion Diocese Committee will hold a prayer vigil in support of Jerusalem Bishop Suheil Dawani at 11 a.m. May 24 in Taft Park, opposite the U.S. Capitol (at the Union Station end).
Bishop Dawani’s Jerusalem residency permit was not renewed by the Israeli government in September 2010, and he and his family are at risk of being expelled from Jerusalem. The vigil is timed to coincide with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress.
