From August 2-4, His Grace Bishop Serapion and the diocese clergy participated in the 2010 North American Coptic Clergy Seminar (NACCS) at St. Mary’s Vineyard in Charlton, Massachusetts.
Our beloved father, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, arrived to the seminar accompanied by 21 metropolitans and bishops in good spirits on Monday and received all of the North American clergy and their families. His Holiness proceeded to deliver several spiritual words to the clergy with much time allocated for questions and answers on pastoral issues.
His Grace and the diocese clergy also congratulated His Holiness on the occasion of his 87th birthday on Tuesday, August 3.
We pray for the life and service of His Holiness Pope Shenouda III and look forward to the blessing of his presence among us for many years to come.
