With great joy, the Diocese announces the upcoming ordination of a new presbyter for the Church of the Holy Virgin Mary and St. Pishoy in Los Angeles. The blessed servant Shady Mikhael will be ordained, God willing, on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at Holy Virgin Mary and St. Pishoy Church to serve with Fr. Meina Youssef, Fr. James Soliman, and Archdeacon Ephraim Soliman.
On Friday, September 23, he was ordained to the Holy Diaconate with the name Deacon Antony.
We pray that our Lord may complete and bless his ordination, and grant him the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
