Dear Friends,

Greetings & Happy New Year!

As some of you already know, SOA Watch NE founder, Linda Panetta, will be leaving for a ten day 
delegation to Iraq on Sunday, January 5. Linda and Johanna Berrigan of the House of Grace Catholic 
Worker will be traveling with Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit, MI and other delegates from 
Voices in the Wilderness, and Peaceful Tomorrows (an organization of friends and relatives of the 
victims of 9/11 who seek a nonviolent response to the events of that day).

The delegation will visit schools, hospitals and other sites in Iraq that have been harmfully 
effected by the U.S./U.N. sanctions. They will also be carrying a message to the Iraqi people they 
meet that there are many Americans trying to change U.S. policy toward their country, trying to 
stop the death and destruction that is being inflicted upon them.

Fr. John McNamee and St. Malachy’s Church has invited Linda and Johanna to the 11:00 mass on 
January 5 to pray over them as they embark on their delegation. We would like to extend this 
invitation to all of you to join St. Malachy’s in sending off our regional participants.

St. Malachy’s Church is on the corner of 11th and Master in North Philadelphia (2 blocks north of 
Girard; 3 blocks east of Broad:  From 676 or vine street, go north on Broad towards the Temple U. 
campus and turn right on Girard to 11th - turn left on 11th -- the church is 2 blocks up on the 
right side).  We hope you can join us.  We also appeal to you to call / visit / send letters to 
members of Congress and express your opposition to further US bombing in Iraq.

The delegation will be returning on January 15th.  There's a possibility that Linda will be 
uploading photos on the website from Baghdad.  If not, be sure and check out the 
website after the 15th!
