Michigan, USA - A handful of Chaldean-American Wayne State University (WSU) students were recently able to do something that not a handful of Catholic churches could do: attain approval of 24-hour Adoration sessions, something many churches overall, have not yet had.
Rasha Kashat, 20, a pre-medical student at WSU, is one of the students that made efforts to allow one 24-hour Adoration session to be held at St. Thomas Chaldean Catholic Church per week.
Kashat said that "Adoration" is a meaningful gathering of individuals at the church to encourage religious practices, as well as have a great time while committing to such practices.
Michigan, USA - Chaldean-American Janie Shina, 24, of West Bloomfield, Michigan is counting on the generosity of the Chaldean community. Shina has been called on a mission to run a marathon to help fight cancer. The longtime Cancer Society volunteer felt it was time to take on a fraction of the challenge that cancer victims face daily.
Shina, describes an incident in which she felt she was “called” to help. “Before the New Year, I wrote down the things that I wanted to accomplish during 2007, and running the marathon was one of them,” said Shina. “And a week later, I received a letter from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Cancer Society requesting volunteers. Gods works mysteriously…this was my calling.”
