• A small exhibition featuring religious items brought from Iraq which were found in the rubble of churches that had been desecrated, burnt and damaged by ISIS, will be held at the Archbishop’s Curia in Floriana.

    Among the items there are broken crosses, burnt and damaged statues and reliquary and perhaps the most frightening, a chalice with bullet holes. The items were recovered from several churches in Teleskuf and Qaraqosh and they are being exhibited in the 24 countries where the Aid to the Church in Need has its offices.

    The aim of this exhibition is to raise awarness about the work carried out by the Aid to the Church in Need and on what is happening to persecuted Christians in the Middle East.

    The display can be seen at the Archbishop’s Curia from Friday, 18th January at 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., till Saturday, 20th January from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
