On Sunday 14 June in St George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem, Archbishop Michael as Primate of the Province joined Archbishop Suheil Dawani and Bishop Peter Eaton of Southeast Florida in making a new Coadjutor (Assistant) Bishop for the Diocese of Jerusalem. Hosam Naoum, previously cathedral dean there, will in due course succeed as Jerusalem’s Anglican diocesan bishop. He is a previous guest speaker at Cyprus and the Gulf’s diocesan synod.
The Diocese of Jerusalem serves Palestine / Israel, Jordan, the Lebanon, and Syria.
Prayers are asked for Bishop Hosam, his wife Rafa, and their family.
