(Syrian-EUS) - On Saturday December 7, 2013, His Eminence, Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim participated in the installation of His Grace, Bishop David as the first Bishop for the newly- formed Coptic Diocese of New York and New England. He was accompanied by the Very Rev. Father Gabriel Adde and Shamosho Esia Bahdi. During the ceremony, His Eminence congratulated His Grace on behalf of The Syriac Orthodox Archdiocese, as well as on behalf of the Standing Conference of the Oriental Orthodox Bishops in the United States. It was an uplifting spiritual gathering for Clergy and Parishioners to enjoy in this holy occasion, the love, concord and harmony among the churches, which the Lord Jesus Christ commanded His followers to have.
We wish His Grace, Bishop David, success in his new mission, asking God Almighty to give him His holy guidance, wisdom and good health.
