Ordination of Deacon and Sub-Deacons

“Follow Me” said our Lord while He walked on the face of the earth. Many heard His message and transformed their lives.

On Sunday August 22nd, 2010, the Seventh Sunday of Summer, the consecration of a deacon and two sub-deacons took place at Mar Yosip Parish by His Grace Mar Awa Royel, Bishop of California. H.G. Mar Awa laid his hand on sub-deacon Ashur Kanoon and was elevated to the ranking of deacon. Along with deacon Ashur, two young men, Lawrence Younan and Banypaul Beitsayad were elevated to the ranking of sub-deacon for this parish.

May God bless them and guide them so that their light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify the Father in heaven.
