Fr. Edward Hanna Receives the Holy Cross
On Sunday, June 13, 2010 His Eminence Archbishop Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim celebrated the Holy Qurbono at Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Southfield, MI. At the end of his sermon His Eminence invited the Rev. Fr. Edward Hanna, the parish priest of Sts. Peter and Paul and
bestowed upon him the pectoral holy Cross in appreciation of his faithful and dedicated service on behalf of our parish in Michigan.
His Eminence had approval from His Holiness the Patriarch four years ago to grant the Holy Cross to Fr. Edward Hanna, however, Fr. Edward
was not accepting the honor as a sign of humility. This time, Fr. Edward was surprised by this move as were all parishioners. We congratulate Fr. Edward wishing him and his family good health and happiness.
