Feast of Our Holy Father Clement, Pope of Rome
AFTER MISSING two years, we are bringing back our annual Christmas Feast. But we're changing it up and will be offering a special deal tomorrow. So mark your calendars for December 11 and watch for details tomorrow.
We are also excited to announce that we are co-sponsoring a conference with St George Orthodox Christian Cathedral on the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. We'll be using this event to launch a local chapter of In Defense of Christians (IDC), a non-profit organization whose mission is "to ensure the protection and preservation of Christianity and Christian culture in the Middle East." So mark your calendars for February 27 and let's learn from IDC what kind of concrete actions we can take.
Speaking of concrete actions, please read the attached letter to President Obama from the leaders of IDC, Genocide Watch, the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, the Center for American Progress, the Hudson Institute, A Demand for Action, and the Armenian National Committee of America urging President Obama to include the Christian communities of Iraq and Syria in any designation recognizing the genocide that religious minorities are currently suffering in the Middle East. If you would like to include your signature with this letter, please email IDC offering your signature with "Eighth Day Institute" below your name.
