Our prayers and congratulations go out to the newly ordained Deacon Mikael (Chady) Jalkh, who was ordained on our altar of St Maron on May 22. His Excellency Bishop Elias Zaiden honored us with this ordination, which was very beautiful and blessed. The only thing that was missing was you and the rest of the parishioners and friends, whether in the pews or in the hall. It was limited to 10 people but it was very intimate and meaningful. Deacon Mikael (Chady) finished his studies in Camarillo, California, and is now doing his pastoral year, with part of it this summer in Minneapolis.
We pray that the Lord God may grant him peace and holiness and sanctify his ministry on his way to the Holy Priesthood. Please keep Deacon Mikael in your prayers and we look forward to a beautiful ministry in our parish in Minneapolis. Together, let us continue praying, supporting our ministers and praying for more vocations to the church.
God bless you Deacon Mikael!
