Michigan, USA – The Camp Chaldean open house brought thousands of community members out into the fresh October air.  Some Chaldeans traveled for three hours to join the tour and share in the celebration of new of the community campground. 

“We worked very hard to get the property ready for the camp open house,” says Adil Kallabat, Camp Chaldean president. “We had crews working around the clock for nearly a month making repairs, cleaning, landscaping, and decorating the buildings.”

Chaldean diocese volunteers came together to offer community tours of the camp property and answer any of their questions.  Nearly ten bus loads of people left from church parking lots to the campground.

Chaldean Patriarch Appointed to Serve as Cardinal to Holy See

It is a blessed gift: to receive the strong calling of becoming a priest. The duties that follow, the hardships that may emerge, and the affection that must be kept for each of God’s children are only general areas on which the priest must focus. But there comes a time in the lives of certain priests where they are ordained to a higher standing, calling and importance. They are given the opportunity to do something more with the world, to really help make a difference.

Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly, head of the Chaldean Catholic Church, embarked upon his vocation the day he was born, on October 6, 1927. From there the days passed and as soon as December 21, 1952 came along, he was ordained a Priest. Throughout the ten years that followed, among his already many responsibilities and obligations, in the month of December 1962, he had taken on the titles of Titular and Auxiliary Bishop and confirmed on December 26, 1962 as such, but on April 19, 1963, the devoted follower of Christ really took on his role as Bishop, when ordained at the young age of 35.

The beautiful elevation of his faith and rank continued on when just a short time ago, on December 3, 2003, the day Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly instigated a new chapter in Chaldean history and officially took on the title known by the world as, “Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly: Patriarch of Babylon for Chaldeans.”

Chaldeans Strongly Band Togther to Boycott Miller Brewing

Michigan, USA - Chaldeans are outraged at the deliberate attack on Christians by San Francisco and the Homosexual Fair organizers.  “This is a group that behaves appallingly and if anyone objects to their criminal behavior they call you intolerant and try to charge you for a hate crime,” says Brian Thomas about the fair.  “These hypocrites mock and attack Christians with such violence and hate and yet no one in San Francisco cares to uphold the law.  The fraudulent leaders of San Francisco have no values, no principals, and no idea of how harmful they are to the United States.” 

Miller brewing company has come under immense pressure once the Catholic League exposed Miller’s support on the attack and hatred of Christians.  The Catholic group called for a boycott of the Miller Brewing Co. after the beer giant failed to have its logo removed from a "gay"-festival promo mocking the iconic Last Supper scene of Jesus Christ and his disciples.

For Mike and Rita Setto, owners of Orion Keg and Wine Party Store, the constant attack on the Christian faith and family values from the media and support by corporations has gone much too far.  In what seems to be a reenactment of David versus Goliath the small business owners were the first to toss Miller out of their establishment.  The bold move has earned the faithful family thousands of calls, coverage by top news agencies, requests to be interviewed on radio and television, and visits from out-of-state customers congratulating the faithful duo for taking a stand.
