Learn About International Persecution of Christians and How You can Help. Special Event this Saturday Evening in Lawrence.

You may be aware of terrible persecutions of Christians around the world. I became aware of this topic and found a non-profit group dedicated to educating Americans about this issue: In Defense of Christians (IDC). They are trying to make a difference within our government and encouraging them to make the necessary policy changes. Currently, there is no local chapter for IDC in Massachusetts, but I am working as a volunteer for to promote an upcoming “Town Hall” discussion and pot-luck dinner on Saturday June 17 in Lawrence.

6:00PM, Saturday June 17, 2017
St. Anthony’s Maronite Catholic Church
145 Amesbury Street
Lawrence, MA 01841

This is a great chance to learn more, ask questions, discuss the issues and meet people with similar concerns. I'm sure it will be sad, shocking, interesting and important. If this is as bad as the reports indicate, there are thousands of innocent people that need our help. I already know a handful of people in Acton and Boxborough who are concerned about this issue, but I'm sure there are many more.

Here is a link to the flyer and registration for the event.


Here is another link to IDC’s latest newsletter.


I have already emailed most of the churches in Acton and Boxborough, but if you are motivated or compelled to help, please spread the word in your church, synagogue, or other segments of our community.

We really want to encourage as many people to RSVP online as possible.

Thank you.
