Join our call for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict.
As Catholics, we believe in the sanctity of all life. At this time of immense pain, grief, and fear of an escalating conflict, Maryknoll leaders signed a letter to President Biden on Nov. 9, asking for his support of an immediate ceasefire, de-escalation, and restraint by all involved, and to prioritize the release of hostages. As the days pass and the violence continues, we hear reports of negotiations but no breakthrough yet. It is important to keep lifting our voices for a ceasefire.
