Good news and bad for Gaza’s tiny Catholic community

ROME – For the tiny Catholic community on the besieged Gaza strip, the last 48 hours have brought both good news and bad, with a couple of Catholic aid workers able to reach safety in Egypt after a border crossing was opened Wednesday, but a gathering at the lone Catholic church in Gaza disrupted by what was described as a nearby Israeli missile strike.

There are only about 1,300 Christians in Gaza amid a total population of two million, and the lone Catholic parish, Holy Family Church in the northern part of the strip, normally serves a community estimated at around 150 Catholics.
