A delegation of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) visited the Gaza Strip, September 14. The bishops celebrated Mass with the local Christian community, talked to residents and surveyed the destruction of the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas militants. They also met the staff of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the bishops’ international relief agency, who have been working to provide disaster relief to those impacted by the violence.
