Dr. Mouneer Hanna, Archbishop of the Province of Alexandria of the Anglican Episcopal Church presided over the confirmation service prayers for 18 new members of the Episcopal/Anglican Church from members of the Church of St. Paul in Ezbet El Nakhl at All Saints Cathedral in Zamalek.
The Church stated in a statement: Archbishop Mouneer concluded the confirmation service with prayer for the new members that God would grant them the grace of the Holy Spirit and confirm them in the life of faith.
The confirmation prayer was attended by Pastor Reda Bushra, pastor of St. Paul’s Church in Ezbet Al-Nakhl, Reverend David Aziz, and some church members.
The service and prayer of confirmation is the declaration of a person’s membership in the Episcopal/Anglican Church, as the new member undertakes before the bishop, the pastor, and all present before God to preserve the Christian faith and the doctrine of the Episcopal/Anglican Church.
It is worth mentioning that the Province of Alexandria for the Episcopal/Anglican Church is the 41st region of this church around the world, and it includes under its presidency 10 countries in Egypt and North Africa, and is under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury and belongs to the Episcopal/Anglican Church Union in the world.
In Egypt, the Episcopal/Anglican Church was established in 1815 and the first Episcopal/Anglican Church was founded in Alexandria in 1839 when it was given a plot of land in Alexandria’s Manshia square to establish the Episcopal/Anglican Church of St. Mark by Mohamed Ali Pasha the Ruler of Egypt at this time.
