EPF supports Ash Wednesday letter to Pope Francis supporting Palestinian children

In coordination with Sabeel and Friends of Sabeel North America, the Episcopal Peace Fellowship is organizing faith leaders to encourage Pope Francis, as he prepares to visit the Holy Land, to denounce the systematic abuse of Palestinian children in the Israeli military court system:

Our colleagues at Sabeel and Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) have crafted a letter to Pope Francis ahead of his trip to the Holy Land calling on him ‘to speak out against the targeting and systematic abuse of Palestinian children by the Israeli military.’ Because of the number of Episcopalians in the initial 200 signatures, we are sending PINontheGo to EPF members as well this week. You can read the letter here and add your signature here if you haven’t already signed on.

And if you know these bishops who signed on, please take a minute to thank them for their witness:

Allen L. Bartlett, Jr.

Edmond Lee Browning

Michael Bruce Curry

Thomas C. Ely

Leo Frade
