Buy an Olive Wood Statue of St. Joseph to Support Christians in the Holy Land: In honor of Saint Joseph the Patron Saint of the Universal Church and in celebration of the dedication of the Year of Saint Joseph, “Christians of the Holy Land” is offering the chance to own an olive wood statue of Saint Joseph. Your statue will be blessed in the Holy Land with an official letter. Mindful of the suffering of our Catholic community in the Holy Land, and giving honour to Saint Joseph’s profession as a wood worker, this olive wood statue will memorialize this year and your devotion to Saint Joseph, while helping Christians in Bethlehem with employment. The Christian community in Bethlehem has not received pilgrims since March 2020 which has been financially devastating.
This initiative represents hope and income for those whose vocation is to continue to bear witness in the land
inhabited and sanctified by Jesus Christ. Please choose the statue size you like and make your check payable to
“Christians of the Holy Land” at the address below. All orders must be received and paid by May 21, 2021 to
ensure timely delivery: Saint Joseph 29 cm is $140 and Saint Joseph 23 cm is $110. Rami Qumsieh, KCHS,
