Australian Syrian Charity's Spirit Of The East Eastern Christmas Carols By Candlelight

The Australian Syrian Charity (ASC) is hosting a night of Eastern Carols By Candlelight praying for Australia and the Middle East, particularly refugees, on Saturday 17 December at St Charbel Village, 45 Providence Road, Greenvale. This is an evening for the whole family and will provide a wonderful opportunity for the community to join together in prayer for the many people who are suffering, particularly in war-torn areas.

In an invitation letter, ASC President Fr Samir Haddad writes:

Christmas is about a new born; a gift from God to humanity. For some, Christmas is about gifts and Christmas tree. For some others, it is time to celebrate the birth of a new born baby, Jesus Christ who came to give us new life and new hope. Especially in the Middle East, there are families and individuals who have lost hope and lost almost everything. We would be delighted to invite you to be a part of our event.
'Last year was great opportunity to celebrate this Eastern Carols and pray for the peace in the middle east. We had a variety of different cultures: Australians, Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, Egyptians and ethnic groups. We all stand together in unity Crying out for God to bring Peace and stop the war, especially in our countries Syria and Iraq, which bleed every single day and sacrificing the dear and precious ones,' said Fr Haddad.

'Your presence is very important to us, to stand in front of God seeking His face for those in need. [The] Australian Syrian Charity has the pleasure to extend an invitation to join us in supporting all the refugees.'
