St. John Church will welcome Maysoon Khair from Star of Bethlehem Handicrafts. Maysoon will be selling carved Olive Wood handicrafts made by small family businesses and the older students of the School of Joy, which is a school for children with learning difficulties located just outside Bethlehem. Sales of the handicrafts directly benefit Christian families living in very difficult circumstances as well as the important work of the school.
“By buying from these articles you are not just supporting the school and the children, but you are also creating in them a sense of self-respect and confidence in their abilities.”
Maysoon will be at the back of the church after all Masses at St. John Church June 23-24. She will be visiting St. Paul Church later in the year.
