“Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.” Hebrews 13:7
Whenever we are given the opportunity to receive our beloved Bishop, Mar Sarhad Y. Jammo in our midst, amazing things happen; we find ourselves drawn into a deeper sense of reflection. Indeed we do, as we observe him in the Sanctuary and listen to his sermon; our hearts yearn to imitate his faith.
During His visit to our Parish on Sunday, 03/06/2016, our beloved Bishop celebrated The Holy Mass along with our Pastor Fr. Awraha Mansoor, granted The Sacrament of Initiation to Lillian, our new sister in Christ. To many, another opportunity to reflect on the most authentic meaning of being a member of the Body of Christ really means.
Following the Mass Bishop Jammo joined the members of our Parish for breakfast at the Parish Hall that was prepared by Daughters of Mary Ministry. The faithful had great opportunity to greet him and receive his blessings. Before his departure, kids and teens from our SMYLE JR. Ministry in their new basketball jerseys, gathered around him for a group picture.
We look forward for next visit of Bishop Jammo to our Parish in the near future. May The Lord Bless and guard our Bishop as he continues to carry out his Episcopal duties towards all the faithful entrusted to him.
