Fr Faiz meets Bishop Curry 

On a trip to the US the Reverend Canon Faiz Jerjes, parish priest of St George Baghdad, had the opportunity to meet Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church of the United States (TEC), the Most Reverend Michael Curry, in New York on 18 May.  

Fr Faiz, accompanied by Sinan Kakarash, was joined by the Reverend Chris Bishop—founder of Stand with Iraqi Christians, and the Venerable Paul Feheley—TEC partnership officer for the Middle East. 

Discussion focused on the work of St George’s since the reopening of the church after the collapse of Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2003. Bishop Curry expressed how moved he was by the work of St George’s in Iraq.
