Br Peter Bray speaking at NSW Ecumenical Council


23 February 2017



On Thursday evening, whilst protests were held in the Sydney CBD to the visit of Prime Minister of Israel’s visit to Australia, another group met to hear Br Peter Bray speak on life in Bethlehem.

Brother Peter Bray, FSC, EdD is the 8th Vice Chancellor of Bethlehem University, the first university established in Palestine and the only Catholic university in the Holy Land.

Br Peter is a De La Salle Brother.  The De La Salle Brothers specifically are concerned with  meeting the educational and welfare needs of young people, especially the poor.

Brother Peter assumed leadership of Bethlehem University in February 2009 and brings more than 30 years of Catholic education experience as a teacher, consultant, administrator, and expert in leadership and educational systems.

A New Zealander by birth, Br Peter has spent the last x years in Bethlehem helping lead what some call an ‘oasis of peace’ for a community living under the military control of Israel.

The event was organised by the Palestine Israel Network and hosted by the NSW Ecumenical Council.
