“Modern Christian Martyrs”

We have all heard about refugees in the news. We have all seen the situation in Syria in the news. But have you taken the time to be a witness to the plight of Christians in the Middle East? Have you listened to the story of a refugee?

The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago is proud to have partnered with the Greater Chicago Broadcast Ministries to produce this documentary that will be aired each Sunday in March at noon on the ABC Live Well Network, which is available in the following broadcast areas: Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Fresno, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston and Raleigh.

Kidnapped, tortured, their priest murdered, a Syrian family is forced to flee, finding asylum here in the United States.  In this edition of Sanctuary, we meet the Alkhoury family, and take a closer look at growing evidence of widespread persecution of religious minorities, as well as efforts by faith communities here in Chicago, the United States government, and the United Nations to find ways to support and protect some of the worlds most vulnerable people.
