The bells of the Cathedral ring to mark the beginning of prayers for the inauguration of a new Archbishop of the Church
The bells of All Saints Cathedral in Zamalek rang to announce the start of prayers for the inauguration ceremony
Archbishop Samy Fawzy as Archbishop of the Episcopal/Anglican Province of Alexandria and Bishop of the Diocese of Egypt by the hands of Dr. Mouneer Hanna Anis, Archbishop of the Episcopal/Anglican Province of Alexandria, who devote himself to spiritual service, where a ceremony of handing over leadership takes place in an atmosphere of cordiality and spiritual love between the bishops.
As the procession began to enter to announce the beginning of the prayers, Bishop Mouneer Hanna left his headquarters, led by deacons, then pastors and visiting bishops, then the elected Bishop, all the way to the archbishop of the church at the end of the ecclesiastical procession that ends with the church’s structure.
Then the church choir begins to sing the hymn “The Church is one foundation.”
The All Saints Cathedral has intensified its preparations to receive the event, as the cathedral lit up its lights that are lit in the major celebrations. Over the past two days, it received quite a few archbishops from around the world, most notably Archbishop Josiah Feron, Secretary-General of the Anglican Communion in the World, and Archbishop Justin Badi, Archbishop of South Sudan and President of the Global South, Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo, Archbishop of Sudan, and Archbishop Foley Beach, Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America.
In the same context, the church receives a number of statesmen and public figures who confirmed their attendance at the service ceremony honoring the bishop, in addition to representatives of all Christian denominations and the people of the church.
