First Holy Liturgy Celebration in Cleaveland, Ohio

20 Mar

On Saturday March 18, 2023, His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak accompanied by V. Rev. Fr. Maroutha Hanna, paid a pastoral visit to our Syriac Orthodox community in Cleveland Ohio where His Eminence celebrated Holy Liturgy assisted by Fr. Maroutha for our new Suryoyo community established in Ohio.

His Eminence first thanked them for their zeal, love and encouraged them to continue to serve and to expand on the parish. He then continued to deliver his sermon and spoke about the gospel of that day which was in Matthew 15 about the Canaanite woman and how one should have faith as strong as her.
