Canon White first went to Iraq as the Archbishop of Canterbury's Middle Eastern Envoy and has become a widely respected champion of peacemaking through sectarian engagement, not only in Iraq, but throughout the Middle East.

Through his organization, the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, he works tirelessly with senior Shia, Sunni and Christian leaders to promote dialogue, understanding and long-term stability in the region.

He has won several peace prizes and appeared in middle eastern media, the BBC World Service and 60 Minutes. Canon White, popularly known as "the Vicar of Baghdad" will be speaking at The Church of the Nativity on Wednesday, May 6 , at 7 pm. There is no admission charge, and a free will offering will be taken to support Canon White' work. Please call the church office for further information.
