Jerusalem Archbishop Of Melkite Greek Catholic Church visits Bethlehem University

On December 4th, Joseph Jules Zerey, Archbishop of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church and Apostolic Vicar of Jerusalem, visited Bethlehem University. Vice Chancellor Brother Peter Bray and Youil Anastas, Vice President for Finances, welcomed the  Archbishop to the University.

The visit served to formalize the University’s ownership of the Mar Andrea property which has been used by the University since the early years; first as a dorm for  female students and currently as offices of the Institute of Community Partnership (ICP) and the housing of the Palestine Museum for Natural History.

The Archbishop also discussed students graduating from Melkite Greek Catholic schools with Brother Peter, who agreed that the University will provide two scholarships on a yearly basis for outstanding students from such schools.
