Bishop William Murphy of Rockville Centre, New York, blesses Rosa Majeed Nouri in a camp for displaced Iraqis in Dawodiya, Iraq, on April 10, 2016. She holds a photo of her son Fawaz, who was killed two months earlier while fighting against ISIS near Telskuf as a member of a Christian militia called the Nineveh Plain Protection Forces.
Bishop Murphy came to northern Iraq with Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York and chair of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, and other church leaders to visit with Christians and others affected by ISIS. Murphy is also a member of CNEWA's beard.
CNEWA is a papal agency providing humanitarian and pastoral support to the church and people in the region.
