The seventh issue of the Star of the Sea magazine is published by the Chaldean Church in New Zealand in December 2009. This issue as always is full of social, religious and cultural themes resulting from the fruits of a good number of its authors. The Arabic language pages contain the parish news and activities. The English language pages also contain the many fruit of our young and youth as well as their photos in colour. We hope for our readers the pleasure of reading this issue and that future editions carry in its pages your written contributions, news items and activities and to take what is appropriate for the benefit of all.
