ACTION: Churches in Iraqi Kurdistan filled to overflowing with refugees

 
  Monastery in Suleimani

CPT’s Iraqi Kurdistan team spent all day yesterday at a
monastery in Suleimani that has taken in sixty-five Christians from Qaraqosh
who fled Islamic State militants with nothing but the clothes on their
backs.  CPTers heard today that the
monastery is expecting sixty more refugees to arrive tomorrow.  Below is a link to a CNN story about
Christians filling St. Joseph’s Cathedral, the largest church in Suleimani.
