Mar Bawai Soro Visits St. Barbara Parish

One of Mar Bawai Soro’s many visits to the parishes of St. Peter Chaldean Diocese to celebrate his official assignment in the Chaldean Church by Pope Francis, was to St. Barbara Chaldean Catholic Church in Las Vegas, Nevada last weakened Mar 22 – 23, 2014.

On Sat 22nd at 11:30am, he visited the church school. He gave a beautiful talk to the children and the teachers followed by a Q&A session. At night, he met the church youth and the choir, giving an excellent speech regarding the three temptations of Jesus in the wilderness. Then, all people with the bishop had a great potluck dinner.

The next day on Sun 23rd, His Excellency celebrated the Holy Mass and the church was full of people. After the Holy Mass there was a great lunch reception at the hall church. The community at St. Barbara Parish congratulates Mar Bawai, thanks him for his visit, and will continue to pray for him and his future endeavors in the Church.
