His Excellency, Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo arrived in San Jose on Saturday, December 1, 2012 for a Pastoral Visit of the Northern Vicariate. The highlight of the weekend will be taking place tonight as three parishes of the Northern Vicariate, St. Mary, St. Thomas and St. Matthew will be coming together to put on a Joint Christmas Concert.
The event will begin at 6PM in the Heritage Theater in Campbell. The participants from Modesto arrived a day in advance in order to practice before the event. For those who are unable to attend, the event will stream LIVE on www.kaldu.tv/live.
Upon his arrival, Mar Sarhad was greeted by Fr. Michael Barrota, Pastor of St. Mary’s Parish and as well as a few faithful. Afterward, he was taken to lunch at the home of Salem and Silvia Iskander, a family that has known Mar Sarhad since his first assignment in 1969 as a young priest. It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon with such a blessed family where they were able to share fond memories of the past as well as a meal together.
