The number of Catholics living in Israel is climbing steadily as new immigrants arrive from other countries, mostly in Asia and eastern Europe. An estimated 50,000 Catholic immigrants are now working with 5-year residency permits; they easily outnumber the 27,000 Palestinian Catholics remaining in Israel.
I find this very interesting, especially since I am here right now. Looking into what we can do for them as far as Mass, teaching, supporting, etc. Hum! I know the priest in charge of 3,000 Filipino workers and I am offering to do conferences for them.
