The Fast of St. Mary

Written by Josephine Minas   

My dear St. Mary's Assyrian Church Parishioners,
Prayers and Blessings receive.
Friday August 1st is the beginning of the fourteen day fast (Known as the fast of St. Mary). We observe this fast annually ending it on the fifteenth of August, which is the day we commemorate the passing of the beloved Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ. St. Mary is the The Patron St. of our parish, our beloved Mart Maryam, and I know she holds a special place in every parishioner's heart and I believe we as a parish are always are in her prayers.
This year I am not only asking, but begging each and every one of you, to join us in this fast (Sawma), dedicating it to our persecuted brothers and sisters in the homeland. Let us all fast and pray for peace for everyone in the world and especially in the Middle-East.
Thank you and God help us all.
His servant,
Fr. George Bet-Rasho
Cor-Bishop, L.A. California.

Mosul Appeal Project Update

Written by Josephine Minas   

Another Assyrian Christian Tragedy Unfolds

ACERO has responded rapidly and begun to reach many families fleeing Mosul and the surrounding areas, who have sought refuge within local churches.

With the assistance of local ACERO chapter members on the ground, important work has already begun to assist those in immediate need, including Assyrians, Chaldeans, Syriac Orthodox and Catholic and Arabs affected by the ongoing turmoil.

ACERO chapter members and partners on the ground report that “they are arriving with the clothes on their backs … they do not even have bags”.

The International Organisation for Migration has estimated that 500,000 residents of Mosul have already fled Iraq’s second-city.

ACERO’s Response

  • Financial aid reached the area within an hour of the reports coming in;
  • The school classroom (within ACERO’s Dohuk Housing Complex) has been converted into temporary shelter for displaced families;
  • Local church parishes have set up food distribution points, as the supplies begin to become sparse; and,
  • A priest’s home has been vacated to allow families to use the facilities for shelter.

ACERO’s Trustees are receiving constant updates on the situation in order to ensure the level of assistance provided meets the requirements and is immediate.

ACERO’s Current Requirements

  • 2000 food baskets consisting of: rice, flour, oil, sugar, tea, soaps, drinking water, corned beef and pasta. This food basket costs $50 USD
  • 2 water tankers which can distribute at least 10,000 litres of clean drinking water. The cost of these tankers is $40,000 USD for near to new models
  • 2 water tanks to store water, and 2 electric generators

How Can You Help?

Your generous support will help ACERO to continue providing direct aid and relief to displaced residents of Mosul and the surrounding Nineveh region. Please show your support and concern by making an urgent contribution securely  in your preferred currency.
