HOLY LAND OLIVEWOOD CARVINGS On the weekend of July 31st/ Aug.1st there will be a display of beautiful olivewood handmade carvings from the Holy Land on the lawn in front of the church. During this difficult time, Bethlehem is shut down since March 2020: no tourism, no income! Sales from olivewood carving is now the only source of income for the Catholic families who still live in the Holy Land. Christians in the Holy Land used to make up more than 37% of the population; there is less than 1% now. As Christians of faith, please consider supporting our brothers and sisters in Bethlehem. You can support them by purchasing some of these beautiful carvings after mass on the weekend of July 31 – August 1. For more information, please contact us at 202-302-5889 or visit www.BethlehemCarvings.org.
