Archbishop George Sheehan invited Archbishop Dr. Samy Fawzy to attend the reception of Cardinal Patriarch Marbeshara Boutros Al-Rahi next Saturday at the Maronite Church in Al-Daher region.
The Archbishop of the Maronite Metropolitan gave an explanation of the Episcopal/Anglican Church’s services and activities, stressing the Church’s keenness to provide a social and humanitarian service through the Refugee Service Center, in addition to engaging with society through the gateway to the cultural and artistic work provided by Gusuor Center.
The Archbishop added: The Maronite Church in Lebanon is a strong church, its services are many, and it has a glorious history, wishing that God would relieve the suffering of the Lebanese people, who were greatly affected during the recent period following the bombing of the port of Beirut.
