A one-week study tour to Jordan in October co-sponsored by CNEWA and the Jordan Tourism Board was a great success, according to Michael J. La Civita, Communications Director. The trip was an opportunity for members of the Catholic Press Association of the U.S. and Canada to encounter the local church and its work, including those supported by CNEWA.
The group also met with members of the Hashemite royal family including Prince Hassan, Prince Rad and his wife, Princess Majda.
Jordan may not be perfect, but it is a beacon of hope in an unsettled region, La Civita said.
