Qatar’s first Catholic Church will be inaugurated in February
The building stands on lands donated by the Emir and will serve over 140 thousand faithful who live in the country. It will have either bell towers, nor crosses because they go against non Muslim religious norms.
The first Catholic Church in Doha in over 14 centuries
Future Parish Priest Fr. Tom Veneration, tells AsiaNews that Qatar’s Catholic community has superseded 100 thousand faithful. They are all foreigners because while the government permits freedom of worship to the Christian confessions it prohibits conversions. The Church will open up at the end of the year, and will be dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary
