Synod of Bishops contributes to Syria

October 19, 2012
In addition to sending a delegation to Syria, members of the Synod can make personal donations that will be added to the donation the Holy See is planning to make.
A special bank account has been opened at Institute for Religious Works (IOR), or the Vatican Bank.  Archbishop Nicola Eterovic, the secretary general of the Synod of Bishops, made the announcement during the general session Friday morning.
The announcement was made public in the Synod bulletin no. 23. No further details have been released about the contribution the Holy See is planning to make.
A delegation of Synod members is expected to travel to Syria during the final week of the Synod.
