Under the auspice of the Franciscan Fathers, the Catholic Action Center located in Bethlehem was established in 1956 as a principal social center for the Christians of Bethlehem. Today, it serves as an oasis for the beleaguered Bethlemites.
"We must continue to keep our mind, body, and spirit intact especially for our Christians who are living under very difficult circumstances in Bethlehem.” Fr. Peter Vasko, OFM, President of FFHL
The Catholic Action Center located in Bethlehem close to Manger Square, provides Christian Palestinians a place of respite from the realities of life in the Holy Land.
The Center houses a theater, swimming pool, teaching classrooms, a computer lab, dining facilities, offices and a new physical fitness room. In the last few years a conference center was added for adult education and catechesis in addition to a new sports center where local Christian youth play soccer and basketball.
