2 Confirmations and 1 Licensing at All Saints!

This Sunday, we were excited to confirm two young people and license one lay reader in the English-Speaking Congregation at All Saints Cathedral.

This Sunday was also The Feast of Christ the King, the day we celebrate that Jesus is not only our Savior, but also our Lord. Bishop Mouneer, in his sermon, gave a brief history of the Feast, and then spoke about how Jesus, the King of Kings, gave “kingship” a new definition: one who serves. He encouraged us to allow Jesus to reign as Lord in our hearts and over our lives—to not just enjoy His salvation, but to allow him to be our King, and to rule over our entire life.

With this sermon in mind, Alexsa MacDowall and Armia Samuel were confirmed, proclaiming their commitment to letting Jesus Christ reign in their life, and Steve Griffin was licensed as a Lay Reader, affirming his commitment to serving Christ the King through serving His Church.

Please pray for the newly confirmed and newly licensed, that the Lord would continue to draw them to Himself and use them to do His work, and that Christ the King would reign in this hearts and minds!

Confirmation of 33 New Members at Epiphany Church in Port Said

Bishop Mouneer recently confirmed thirty-three new members at the Epiphany Church during his visit to Port Said in November. All of those who were confirmed had attended the church for at least one year or more. Before confirmation, the members had a course of confirmation lessons, and were required to complete the Alpha course. They also studied the book “A Church I Believe In,” which covers the four basics of Anglican faith and identity. All of the members also played an active role in serving the church before their confirmation.

While he was there, Bishop Mouneer also attended one of the weekly family meetings. During this meeting, he spoke about being transformed to better reflect the image of Christ. Attendance of these meetings has grown rapidly; now fifty-five families are part of these meetings every week at the Epiphany Church in Port Said.

Please pray for the new members of the Epiphany Church. Pray that they would continue to grow in Christ, and reflect His love to all those in their church and in their community.
