Update on Archbishops’ Kidnapping

The Archdiocese contacted our Archdiocesan offices in Aleppo 8:00 am this morning. They have confirmed that Archbishop Yuhanna Ibrahim and Archbishop Boulos Yazigi are still in captivity. No word of their release has been verified as they continue to monitor the situation.

His Eminence Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim continues to personally remain in contact with the State Department in Wahshington, DC. As of 9:00 am this morning, the Archbishop was assured of their continued effort in “trying their best” to reach out to their contacts in the area and governmental partners who can possibly intervene and help facilitate their release.
