Keeping Hope Alive - Br Peter Bray

Peter Bray fsc, a de la Salle brother and a New Zealander, is the Vice Chancellor of Bethlehem University, the first university established in Palestine and the only Catholic University in the Holy Land. “Our vision emerges from our unique and critical mission as an oasis of peace and a beacon of hope, which provides quality higher education to prepare our students to create the future of Palestine.” You can read more about Peter and the university here –

At the Cenacle, we think of Peter every Friday as we say our prayers for peace each week, as he does, also weekly on a Friday, in Palestine at the Separation Wall.
