Deacon Dr. Ehab Beshara  was ordained as Fr. Anthony on Sunday 8th January 2012 at St. Mary & St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Centre in Birmingham through the laying of hands by His Grace Bishop Missael.

The service was attended by all the Diocese priests and several members of the congregations of St. Mary & Archangel Michael in Solihull, St. Mary & St. Mina in Manchester, St. Mary & St. George in Nottingham and St. Mary & St. Abaskhyroun in Llandudno in adddition to those of St. Mary & St. Abu-Sefein at the Coptic Centre.

We pray that the Lord may grant the new presbyter the gift of the Holy Spirit and bless his service for many years.
