On Monday, March 17, 2014, the Church celebrates the second annual commemoration of the Thrice-Blessed Pope Shenouda III of blessed memory who departed into eternal joy on March 17, 2012 after shepherding the Church and presiding over Her unprecedented growth for over 40 years.
For this reason, every parish of the Diocese will remember his pure soul in the Sunday Divine Liturgy on March 16. Additionally, the fathers in every parish will say a few words about his blessed life and enormous legacy.
Additionally, St. John Church in Covina will have an official commemoration on March 16 at which several dignitaries will be present to dedicate one of the street corners near the church in the name of Pope Shenouda III. All are encouraged to attend.
May his pure prayers be with us.
