Ordinations in Lebanon

We were blessed to attend three ordinations during our two week visit to Lebanon. The first ordination was at Our Lady of Lebanon in Harrisa on Saturday September 28 at 4:00PM for Father Elias Abdallah Zaidan who was ordained to the Episcopacy as the Bishop for the Eparchy of Our Lady of Lebanon. On the same day in the evening at 7:00PM we attended the Ordination of Father Elias Khalil in his hometown of Horjael.

The following day at 3:00PM we participated in the ordination of Father Antoine Kairouz in his hometown of Adonnis. Mother Marla Marie was asked to take up the gifts for the offering. His Excellency Bishop Gregory Mansour was the main celebrant for both of these ordinations. Our best wishes and prayers for our new Bishop Elias and two new priests, Father Elias and Father Antoine for the Eparchy of Saint Maron, Brooklyn. May God bless your priestly ministries of love and service to our Maronite Church.
