In the church of St. Catherine in Bethlehem an Award Plaque for the ‘Belgian Heritage abroad’: the Nativity stained glass window. A sign of the long link between Belgium and the Franciscan Custody.
A bond that has linked these two countries for centuries. A prize won a year ago, and a plaque inaugurated last Sunday. These are some of the milestones of the time line linking Belgium to the Holy Land.
The last step was carried out on May 8, 2016, at St. Catherine’s Church in Bethlehem: a special award plaque highlighted the 2015 victory of the Belgian Heritage abroad. To win the award given by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by the King Baudouin Foundation was the glass contained in the central apse of the basilica, located under the choir.
