Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States

San Antonio, Texas - Candidate for Priesthood

February 18, 2012

COLLEYVILLE, TX. February 18, 2012 -- God willing, on Sunday, March 18, 2012, the St. Antony Coptic Orthodox Church in San Antonio will be blessed with an ordination of a new priest. The candidate to be is Dr. Mounir Ibrahim. We ask for your prayers in the fulfillment of God's will for this blessed event.

"The work of the priesthood is done on earth, but it is ranked among heavenly ordinances. And this is only right, for no man, no angel, no archangel, no other created power, but the Paraclete Himself ordained this succession, and persuaded men, while still remaining in the flesh to represent the ministry of angels."
- St. John Chrysostom, On the Priesthood
