Sr. Souraya and Icons in Lebanon

Meet Sister Souraya! During our visit to Lebanon we went to Zouk, outside of Beirut, where we helped rebuild the icon studio or ‘Atelier’ of Sr. Souraya, who is a Lebanese nun of the Basilian Order. Her icon of Mary, Mother of the Persecuted Church, will be enshrined in a special ceremony in London on September 8, a place of prayer for persecuted Christians, and the second Shrine we will have established after NYC in 2017.
