Muslims and Christians join to rebuild places of worship demolished by ISIS
Iraqi Muslims and Christians are joining forces to rebuild the Conventual Church of Our Lady of the Hour, also known as the Al-Saa’a Church, the Al Tahera Syriac Catholic Church and the Al Nouri Mosque complex with financial support provided by the United Arabic Emirates in the framework of the UNESCO "Reviving the Spirit of Mosul" initiative.
With the official approval from the Dominican order, UNESCO – in close collaboration with relevant authorities – will now start the stabilisation and rehabilitation of The Conventual Church of Our Lady of the Hour in Mosul.
The Conventual Church of Our Lady of the Hour lies at the heart of the Old City of Mosul, at the junction of the two main streets that cut through the historic urban fabric. Built at the end of the nineteenth century, it has always been considered as one of the iconic landmarks of the Old City of Mosul.
In October 2019, the stabilisation and rehabilitation of the Conventual Church of Our Lady of the Hour was included as one of the main results in the UAE funded UNESCO Project ‘Reviving the Spirit of Mosul by rebuilding its historic landmarks’, along with the Al Tahera Syriac Catholic Church and the Al Nouri Mosque complex, the Dominican Order reported last week.
