Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem His Beatitude Pierbattista Pizzaballa has expressed appreciation for the efforts exerted by the American University of Madaba (AUM) with regards to providing the Jordanian society with graduates who can act as leaders in serving the country.


This was reported during a visit he paid on Wednesday, June 9, to the AUM in the company of Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Bishop William Shomali and Fr. Imad Alamat.


During the visit, Patriarch Pizzaballa met with Acting AUM President Professor Nayef Haddad, with the deans of the faculties, and with the nuns who are responsible for student residence at the university campus, which is called the "the House of Grace". During the meeting, Professor Haddad briefed Patriarch Pizzaballa on the progress attained by the university and its unstinting quest to serve the local community.


The visit included a tour of the AUM facilities which was designed to shed light on the various disciplines needed in the labor market, as well as the up-to-date laboratories, and the environment-friendly green campus.


In attendance during the visit were Fr. Firas Nasrawin, Fr. 'Ala' Ba'ir, and Fr. Amer Jubran.
