Clogher Bishop joins local cleric in sit out

From 9.00am to 1.00pm on Wednesday 23rd December, the Reverend Noel Regan along with Bishop Jackson will hold a 'sit out' in the County Fermanagh village of Belleek, to raise funds for the Holy Land Medical Relief Fund. Commenting on this initiative Bishop Jackson said: ‘I have every confidence that the people of Belleek from right across the community will respond to this Christmas Appeal with their characteristic generosity.’
Revd Regan participated in the 2008 Clogher Diocesan Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, and is currently Diocesan Curate in the Garrison, Slavin, Belleek and Kiltyclogher Group of Parishes, which straddle the Fermanagh Leitrim border. Revd Regan was also involved, serving as Chairperson, in the Diocesan appeal which supported the Jacaranda Farm Project in the Diocese of Kaduna, Nigeria.
The Holy Land Medical Relief Fund is spearheading a major fundraising drive this Christmas to support the updating and restructuring of St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus.
The hospital, which was built around the turn of the 19th century by the Church Missionary Society (CMS), is administered by the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem and provides health care services to the poor and needy, regardless of race and religion. It is also an essential symbol of mutual respect and cooperation in the city of Nablus where it is a major employer, providing Christians and Muslims the opportunity to work together for the Common Good.
