His Eminence Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim Celebrates Liturgy During the Annual Suryoyo Picnic
On Sunday, 21st of August, local parishes held their Annual Suryoyo picnic in St. Mary’s Villa, Sloatsburg, New York. Despite a few light showers, the weather was beautiful and the attendance was superb.
His Eminence Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim celebrated the Holy Liturgy outdoors for parishioners who embraced the change in environment. The clergy of the NJ/NY area participated in the Holy Qurobo, with deacons from their parishes too.
After the Holy liturgy, everybody enjoyed the delicious barbecue from the grill, which was prepared by Mor Gabriel’s Parish Ladies. His Eminence Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim spent time socializing and interacting with everyone as they all socialized, participated in sports, played games, and some walked around the beautiful premises.
It was a beautiful, fun, and blessed day.
