St. Catherine's St. Catherine's St. Catherine's

Franciscan Church immediately next to the Church of the Nativity.
Nice day in Bethlehem, particularly at Bethlehem University and at our Mass in Shepherd's field. We were a bit rushed through the Church of the Nativity, which is currently covered in scaffolding for renovations. We had more time in the nearby Franciscan Church of St. Catherine. We also had the wonderful opportunity to tour Bethlehem University and interact with several Palestinian students during our visit; a few students joined us for great food and conversation during the lunch hour. May God continue to bless the ministry of the De LaSalle Christian Brothers and the lives of their students, faculty and staff at this excellent institution.
