The Episcopal/Anglican Church celebrates the graduation of a new batch of students of the School of Theology
Today, Saturday, the Episcopal/ Anglican Church celebrated the graduation of a new batch of students of the Alexandria School of Theology, with a ceremony hosted by the Church in Zamalek
Dr. Mounir Hanna, Archbishop of the Episcopal/Anglican Church congratulated the new graduates, saying:
There is no doubt that what you learned during the school years helped you to increase your knowledge of the mind of God and to delve into the teaching of the Apostles, and I pray that this teaching will help you so that your service will be an effective and effective service leading to the growth of the Church and the extension of the Kingdom of God.
He added in his speech, which began after the graduates’ parade: You were on a journey during the years of study, and this journey led you to this day when you receive your graduation certificates, continuing: But I hope that today is not the end, but rather I hope that it will be the beginning of a new journey, a journey that extends longevity It is the discipleship journey. The knowledge that you have learned is just a catalyst for you while you are on the journey of discipleship, which I hope from my heart that you decide and are determined to begin today.
Hanna added: If you get a bachelor’s, master’s, or even a doctorate in theology, it does not mean that you have become a disciple of Christ, stressing: We must know very well that we will not be able to make a difference in the church and we will not be influential in service unless we become true disciples of Christ.
For his part, Bishop Samy Fawzy, Dean of the College, said:
The Lord spoke about the harvest is great and the workers are few, so it is a call to us that the church needs true servants whom the Lord will send to gather his harvest, adding; Servants do not tire or tire. God wants servants who meet challenges with the sword of the Holy Word.
While Bishop Krikor Koussa, Archbishop of Alexandria, confirmed to the Armenian Catholics that the graduates are 12, which is the same number of Christ’s apostles, indicating that true knowledge of God is to go to everyone and discover Christ in them because we were created in his image.
While the student Lydia El-Deeb gave the speech of the graduates of the college, saying: During the Corona pandemic, I discovered that what I am much more important than what I have and that the challenges that only God face
Lydia expressed her thanks to Archbishop Mouneer Hanna, who opened the doors of the School of Theology for all students to get to know more about Christ.
