On 20 March 2021, the Anselmiana community met for an evening of information and fraternal sharing. A resident of ours, deacon D. George Frick, who comes from the city of Aleppo, Syria, gave a presentation of the situation in his homeland, which has been affected by the war for 10 years. He told the story of the country, shared personal experiences, and asked everyone’s prayers for his people who, at the moment, are suffering from hunger and the pandemic.
