Saint George’s Church in Baghdad

November 5, 2010

Saint George’s Church was estabished as an Anglican Church in 1864 for the British. It was known under Saddam Hussein as the English church and for that reason it was periodically closed down.

Canon Andrew White, who I had the honour and privilege of meeting, is the Vicar of Saint George’s Church in Baghdad. He is also the President of FRRME, who provide the support for Saint George’s.

The beautiful music is the church choir.
