Bethlehem University, the only Catholic/Christian university in the Holy Land, has received a $1.5 million gift from the Middle Atlantic Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem for the university’s current Institute for Community Partnership (ICP) Expansion Project. The building, once completed, will be named in honor of the late Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre, His Eminence John Patrick Cardinal Foley.
The funds come from a bequest to the Lieutenancy from the Estate of Lady Rose Bente Lee Ostapenko. Ostapenko was known for her lifelong dedication to Catholic and other philanthropic works. Read more about her here >
The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is the only lay institution of the Vatican State charged with the task of providing for the needs of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem and of all the activities and initiatives to support the Christian presence in the Holy Land.
