Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States

Priest Ordination - San Antonio, TX

March 17, 2012

COLLEYVILLE, TX. March 17, 2012 -- Due to the departure of His Holiness, the priest ordination of Dr. Mounir Ibrahim for the St. Antony Coptic Orthodox Church in San Antonio has been postponed. 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
