His Holiness Ordains a New Priest and Decorates Another with the Pectoral Cross
On July 11, 2014, His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II celebrated the divine liturgy in St. Mark Cathedral in New Jersey assisted by their Eminences Mor Theethose Yeldho Archbishop of the Malankara Diocese of North America, Mor Dionysius Jean Kawak, Patriarchal Office Director in Damascus, and Mor Chrysostomos Markose, Metropolitan of the Evangelical Association of the East along with some priests, deacons and the choir of the Cathedral.

During the divine liturgy, His Holiness ordained deacon Gabriel Barsoum Al-Kass as a priest for St. Barsawmo Church in Wyckoff. In his sermon, His Holiness spoke of the qualities of the priests and congratulated the new priest and his family and parishioners. He also prayed for the late Fr. Shamoun Asmar who served the parish of St. Barsawmo since its establishment. His Holiness also thanked Rev. Fr. Elias Shabo for his service to the parish during the sickness of Fr. Shamoun and after his passing away. He then unexpectedly decorated him with the pectoral cross in appreciation for his 17 years of service in the patriarchal vicariate of Eastern USA.

In turn, the ordained priest spoke of serving the altar of the Lord and the greatness of priesthood. He pledged obedience to His Holiness and promised to be the faithful servant of the parishioners and the cooperating brother to the priests of the diocese.

At the end of the celebration, the new priest accepted congratulations in the cathedral. Afterwards, all the invitees sat to a special banquet for the occasion.

His Holiness Patriarch Aphrem II had directed His Eminence Mor Dionysius Jean Kawak to celebrate the divine liturgy on Wednesday July 9, 2014 during which he elevated Subdeacon Gabriel Barsoum AL-Kass into the rank of the full deacon.
