A Home for Christians
“Christianity might have died in Iraq. … Because of our commitment, life goes on for our brothers and sisters. But our work is not over. It is not time to turn away. We must continue.”
– Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, Aug. 7, 2018
In recent years, the Knights of Columbus has been assisting in the construction of McGivney House, a 140 unit apartment building that will provide housing for displaced Christian families in the Middle East.
When finished and opened, McGivney House will house over 110 families originally from the Nineveh plain. Special units have been designed for the elderly who were left without care in the aftermath of the onslaught from ISIS.
The building allows Christians to once again have a dignified living in the homeland, and grants them ease of worship — the house has a chapel on site and stands less than 10 minutes from a newly opened Catholic church.
The building is nearly complete, but it is still awaiting the installation of electricity, air conditioning and a water supply.
