‘Vicar of Baghdad’ to visit Ulster churches

From Ireland-

He’s known as the Vicar of Baghdad, but Anglican minister Canon Andrew White had to leave the city, the second largest in the Arab world, as Christians in Iraq came under increasing threat.

The minister was directly ordered to leave the Iraqi capital by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Now Canon White, a father-of-two, who is also coping with multiple sclerosis, is on a worldwide fund-raising mission, which brings him to the Province next week.

Rev Keith Marshall, curate at St Mark’s Portadown, said that he was delighted that his church would be “hosting this wonderful man” next Friday.
