First Reading Time and Book Siging Event for His Eminence Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim

On Sunday, July 24, 3011 His Eminence Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim held a group of children spellbound while reading from his new children’s book, In The Tree House. On this special Sunday afternoon, children and parents alike were caught up in the Archbishop’s reading and spontaneous interaction with the children.

As one attendee, Jack Darakjy, Esq., shared:
“This was one of the most interesting and unique events I have ever attended. The picture of Archbishop Cyril sitting with those young toddlers and reading to them was, as the saying goes, “priceless.” In the nearly 50 years that I have been attending our Church here in the U.S., I have never witnessed anything comparable to this heartwarming scene. I think that virtually everyone who was there felt exactly the same way. It is hard to think of a more perfect example of Christian love and humility. I’m glad I was there to be a part of it and I thank you again for the invite.”
