Gaza Catholics cancel Christmas Eve Midnight Mass in protest of blockade
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
The head of Gaza's tiny Roman Catholic community announced on Wednesday that Christmas Eve's Midnight Mass celebration is canceled, in protest of the blockade on the Gaza Strip.
Father Manuel Musallem said the parish would instead hold an evening mass.
About 4,000 Christians, including about 300 Roman Catholics, live in Gaza, a conservative Muslim society. Most of the remaining Christians are Greek Orthodox.
