The international commitments of the Order of St. George mean we are privileged to work with some remarkable people risking all to make a positive difference to the lives of their communities.
One such is our Order’s Spiritual Protector, Canon Andrew White, GCStG,who for many years was the vicar of St. George’s church, just outside the city’s Green Zone. St. George’s is the last Anglican church in the entire country, but its practical work in support and community building reaches far beyond the boundaries of the small Anglican community. Today, St. George’s serves as the base for the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, which Canon Andrew established in 2005 as part of his reconciliation work in Iraq and the Middle East as a whole.
Sadly but inevitably, there are those who see the work of St.George’s as a threat to be eliminated. Canon White and his colleagues must work not only under the constant threat of violence, but actual physical attacks that have seen over a thousand members of the Church murdered since 2003. Yet the work continues...
