Home / About / Overview

Overview: Chaldeans are Aramaic-speaking,  Eastern Rite Catholics and Iraq and Syria’s indigenous  people. Metro  Detroit is home to the largest Chaldean population outside the Middle  East with  an estimated 150,000. Since the United States’ invasion of Iraq, more than three fourths  (1,000,000+) of Iraq’s Christian population have fled due to religious persecution and remain displaced as refugees all over the world.  More than 30,000 of these refugees have entered Michigan. Additionally, many Syrian refugees are expected in Michigan  in the next few years. Syria is home to the second-largest Chaldean community in the world.
