It is with deep sorrow that the Marmarchi Family announce the passing of their beloved Mother on Friday 22nd November, to be reunited again with her husband Dominic. Melena has been privileged to live a long, happy and healthy life. Melena was the proud mother of her beloved two sons Adil and the late Basil.
She is grandmother to Layla, Laith, Jamil, Taymoor and Fadi. Most of them were at her bedside at the end which must have given her great peace and tranquillity in her last moments.
Melena was also lucky to see so many of her great grandchildren Talia, Emile, Dominic, Marcos, Leon, Fabio, Basil, Gabrielle, Tatiana, and Dany.
To start the festive season, we hope that you will join us for a musical evening in aid of ICIN where you will enjoy Christmas carols and close-harmony songs from our talented ICIN Ladies Choir and the Pafties. In addition, there will be organ solos and flute accompaniments performed by close supporters of ICIN.
The concert will be followed by a Grand Iraqi Buffet.
Date: Sunday 1st December 2013

The memorial mass for Suhail was well attended by family and friends. Many of those who filled the church gathered for a meal afterwards. The good gathering was in itself a tribute to Suhail.
Thank you to all attendees.
Father Bernard Winn, the parish priest of the church of St Christopher’s in Cheam, has kindly accepted ICIN’s request to offer a 6-month memorial mass for the repose of the soul of the late Suhail Michael this November.
As many of you already know, Suhail was ICIN’s treasurer since 2007 and one of its founding members.
All are Welcome.

The Wales Charity Event day organised by the Iraqi Christian Association in Wales to raise funds for ICIN was a great success. It was attended by over 60 people and raised £1600 for ICIN projects.
A big thank you to ICAW for organising the event and to all the supporters and attendees.
ICIN trustees are truly thankful for the following letter of condolences from Father Khalil Jaar of Messengers of Peace - Jordan.
Suhail was an advocate of ICIN’s main activity in Jordan; the educational aid program for the displaced Iraqi children. Father Khalil’s prayers and the prayers of the Iraqi students for his soul are greatly appreciated.
