Syria’s Catholic and Orthodox churches work together harmoniously — and we help them. Pontifical Mission supports outreach to Iraqi refugees; helps the churches with housing and job programs; provides assistance for catechetical programs; bolsters pastoral programs of the churches; and builds churches and community centers.
