The shrinking Dead Sea and a polluted River Jordan are the results of many factors, not the least are the many wars that periodically ravage this conflict-ridden region. As one of the more stable countries in the Middle East, Jordan has become a haven for many fleeing the Syrian Civil War. But Jordan is a very small and poor country. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is in Jordan, providing assistance on a daily basis to poor Jordanians and refugees. See CRS in Jordan for more.
Vice President of Catholic Relief Services Joan Rosenhaur will lead the social justice workshop at the 50th Anniversary celebration in October. To learn more about Joan and her presentation, and to register for the free event, visit the 50th Anniversary page at mocatholic.org.
