Father Adday celebrates mass at an apartment in Kirsehir, Turkey. Father Remzi Diril, known as Father Adday, celebrates mass at an apartment in Kirsehir, Turkey.
Father Adday is the only Chaldean Catholic priest in charge of pastoral work in Turkey. Every year he travels across Turkey to tend to the community of Iraqi Christian refugees, estimated at around 40,000.
“A mass in a house is more like a family. Father and children sharing the glory of God”. “I would say it is like watching a film in a movie theater versus watching it at home with your family,” Father Adday explains.
