Father Samaan Shehata was collecting humanitarian aid for his parish in Beni Suef on Thursday, October 12 2017 when he was chased by a man who stabbed him several times. Santa Verena Charity has set up a fund to help support his family and community.

If you’d like to donate to this fund, you may:

  1. Donate via our website: and be sure to type “Father Samaan” in the “Purpose (optional)” field.
  2. Or you can call our office at 949-471-0310 to make your donation.
  3. Or you may write a check to Santa Verena Charity – write “Father Samaan” in the memo line, and mail it to P.O. Box 51206, Irvine, CA 92619.

And do not forget to pray that the Lord may help our brethren in Egypt get through this difficult time. May His blessings be your reward always.
