Over 1,500 have been killed in Gaza and 8,000 were injured in the recent days because of the fighting between Israel and Hamas. Syria is suffering... more»

    "During this month, the drums of war seemed to beat louder than usual. The majority of people throughout the Middle East prayed that the impending military intervention into Syria would not come to past. Our prayers for peace were joined with men and women of goodwill from around the world and I am grateful to Almighty God that military intervention did not take place." from Bishop Suheil Dawani.

    Dear Friends, Greetings from the Holy City of Jerusalem! ... I am very grateful to the clergy of the Diocese for the important ministry they provide to our young people through the year, but also during the summer holidays. Many young people attended camps during the recent weeks and received important Christian formation in fun-filled ways. Helping Christian youth to continue to mature in their faith and to live out their baptism by taking their rightful place in church and in society is a truly precious gift to impart to them... link»

  • Churches attacked in Egypt

    15 August 2013

    As I write these words, our St. Saviour's Anglican Church in Suez is under heavy attack from those who support former President Mursi. They are throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the church and have destroyed the car of Rev. Ehab Ayoub, the priest-in-charge of St. Saviour's Church. I am also aware that there are attacks on other Orthodox churches in Menyia and Suhag in Upper Egypt (see photo), as well as a Catholic church in Suez. Some police stations are also under attack in different parts of Egypt. Please pray and ask others to pray for this inflammable situation in Egypt. more»

    "June has been a very busy and truly productive month! God's grace has been abundant! It is always with genuine anticipation that I attend the graduation ceremonies of our Anglican schools as I am encouraged by the extraordinary dedication of the teaching staff and the brilliance of the students.

  • Congratulations Egypt - a message from Bishop Mouneer

    4 July 2013

    "At last, Egypt is now free from the oppressive rule of the Muslim Brotherhood! The Armed Forces took the side of the millions of Egyptians who demonstrated in the streets since the 30th of June against President Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Armed Forces responded to the invitation of the people to intervene and force the President to step down at the request of the people of Egypt." more»

    29 November 2012

    "Egypt is like a patient recovering from a surgery. The body is still struggling to survive. We will have to wait and see what happens. Right now there is no clear vision or road map for the future. The Muslim Brotherhood spoke about a big project called “Revival” but no one knows this project, what are the implications, the goals, the aims, etc… It is very cloudy at the moment. But, however, we should say, that we have hope because we are in the hands of the Lord and He is in charge and He is in control." link»

    27 November 2012

    The road outside our gate is just horrible. It was wrecked by trucks and then the authorities dug it up for sealing but the budget ran out and so it was just left. With the coming of the rains it became a whole series of muddy pools. Our enterprising staff dug it up a bit more to make a high path on one side so that pedestrians, cyclists and motorbikes can get past without going through the mud – provided they don't veer off the high path. link»
