Is it safe to be Christian in Turkey?


A land that was once regarded as the cradle of Christianity, today has seen its numbers dwindle to just 0.2%. Modern-day Turkey is a vibrant country where east meets west in a kaleidoscope of cultures and ethnicities. However, over the centuries, Christianity has seen a steep decline, to the point where some Catholic bishops claim they are striving just to survive.

EWTN’s Colm Flynn spent a week in Turkey to talk to some members of the Church to get an idea of the state of the Catholic Church in Turkey today.
