Ramadan Ghagba

Ballooons, bunting and huge crowds of people welcomed Shaikh Nasser to Sacred Heart Ramadan GhagbaRamadan GhagbaChurch for a Ramadan Ghagba, an event organized jointly by the Bahrain Federation of Expatriate Associations, under Betsy Mathieson the first of its kind and certainly an event that was appreciated by those who attended.

Bahrain TV was there and I was glad to acknowledge the openness of Bahrain to welcome Ramadan Ghagbapeople of different faiths and the genuine respect for people of different faith traditions. This is not true in many countries of the Middle East and is not something that we should take for granted.
