The Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, 23 S 38th St, Philadelphia, PA 19104

Stand With Iraqi Christians (SWIC) invites you to a service of Holy Eucharist and an informational forum at The Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral.

We will welcome the Rev. Canon Faiz Jerjes and Mr. Sinan Karakash, two leaders of St. George’s Church, Baghdad, which is the only Anglican Church in Iraq. Father Faiz and Sinan will discuss the current situation of Christians in Iraq and what is needed to ensure they have a safe and economically viable future in their homeland.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Pam Faber at  

Stand With Iraqi Christians’ mission is to offer friendship and financial assistance to Iraqi Christians and their communities as they work to restore peace, rebuild society, and secure a future for their children.  Conceived and nourished by people just like you, SWIC was founded in 2015 at St. Martin’s Church, Radnor. Under the leadership of the Rev. Chris Bishop, and with the encouragement and support of the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, and this Diocese, we heard and responded to the cries of those in Iraq who had suffered much and yearned for a new start.
