Many of them have been relocated within the Diocese by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. H.G. Bishop Youssef, along with Fr. Youstos Ghaly, the priest from New Orleans, will be praying the Divine Liturgy in St. Mark Coptic Orthodox in Houston, Texas on September 18, 2005.

On Saturday, September 24, 2005, His Grace and Fr. Youstos will be praying the Divine Liturgy in Pensacola, FL with those who have relocated in that area.

We ask for your continual prayers during this time of need.

Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!” (Ps 31:19)
