Making music with young Jordanian Christians, Syrian Muslim refugees

Notes from the Field - One of the volunteer projects I enjoyed the most during my stay in Jordan was the Caritas Music Project, offered throughout Jordan and aiming to integrate Syrian Muslim refugee children with Jordanian Christian children, ages 6 through 12. So the Salesian Sisters' house in Amman opened its doors to refugees once again.

All in costume

"She turned around and saw Jesus there, but did not know it was Jesus" (John 20:14). Ahead of me going into the grocery store is a lady wearing a plaid skirt, a checked blouse, a cardigan full of holes, and bedroom slippers for shoes.
