Event description

Description

The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, in anticipation of the Holy Season of Advent, invites the community to turn their attention to the plight of the Little Town of Bethlehem and the suffering of the Christian people at the birth place of Our Lord. The Christian population in Bethlehem has dwindled from a majority to under 12 percent and they face continued incredible pressure from all sides. Please join us to view the award winning and critically acclaimed film, Open Bethlehem, and to meet the film maker and director, Leila Sansour, as she openly discusses this crisis and what we as followers of Christ are called to do in the face of this situation.
