Reverend Father Ibrahim Chahoud

On behalf of His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH, and the Very Reverend Great Economos Father Michel Najim (Dean of the Southern California Deanery), it is with extreme sadness that we inform you that Father Ibrahim Chahoud fell asleep in the Lord on Sunday, January 13, 2019. His Eminence is asking the parishes to remember him in prayer for the next 40 days, and to hold a special Trisagion for his eternal life.

The Trisagion Service for the Departed will be held at St. Mary Church in Murrieta, California (26871 Hobie Circle #A-1 Murrieta, CA 92562) at 6 PM on Monday, January 14, 2019. Following the Trisagion Service, his wife, Kh. Joanna, his son, Georgio, and the priest and faithful of St. Mary Church will be receiving condolences at the church until 9 PM. The details of the funeral and burial services are still pending and will be announced once the final arrangements are made.

May God receive him in His Heavenly Kingdom and may his memory be eternal.

Athanasius and Cyril, Patriarchs of Alexandria (January 18)

With work of Orthodoxy, ye shone forth and extinguished wicked opinion, becoming triumphant and clothed with victory. And having enriched all with true worship, and adorned the Church with great adornment, Athanasius and wise Cyril, ye worthily found Christ God, granting to all, through your prayers, the Great Mercy. (Apolytikion in Tone 3)

Thought for the Day

“The good God has given them a share in His own Image, that is, in our Lord Jesus Christ, and has made even themselves after the same Image and Likeness. Why? Simply in order that through this gift of God-likeness in themselves they may be able to perceive the Image Absolute, that is the Word Himself, and through Him to apprehend the Father; which knowledge of their Maker is for men the only really happy and blessed life.” Athanasius the Great (On the Incarnation)
