St. Matthew’s Joyfully Receives Bishop Mar Bawai Soro

On Sunday, September 22nd 2013, H.G. Bishop Mar Bawai Soro celebrated Holy Mass at St. Matthew Parish along with the faithful. As always, Bishop Soro gave us an inspiring sermon. He taught us how to grow in faith; how true prayer should come from the heart and how it should be steady and persevering – so we can receive God’s blessings. Bishop Soro also conveyed best regards from our beloved Bishop, H.G. Mar Sarhad Yawsip Jammo, to all the faithful here.

Following the Mass Bishop Soro and the faithful gathered at the parish hall to have Sunday breakfast prepared by Daughters of Mary Ministry as is the tradition at our parish. He spent time talking to the parishioners who had missed him greatly and were very happy to see him again.

Bishop Soro took his time to personally visit a few church members who were unable to attend Mass. His visits always bring blessings to our parish and into our homes. We are very grateful to H.G. Mar Bawai Soro for visiting us and we look forward to his visits in the near future.
