QATAR GIVES PERMISSION TO BUILD CATHOLIC CHURCH
    DOHA, Qatar (CWNews.com) - The Islamic government of Qatar has approved the building of a Catholic church in the capital to serve the Persian Gulf country's estimated 60,000 Catholics, according to the Gulf Times newspaper.

    The newspaper quoted Italian Ambassador Ignazio Di Pace as calling the move "a very important step, consistent with the principles of tolerance and freedom which are among the noble goals of the emir," Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.

    Other Persian Gulf countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, and Kuwait, already have churches and allow Christians to practice their faith freely.
