Congratulating Our Newest Bishops

Chaldean Catholic Diocese of St. Peter the Apostle

Congratulation Message for the New Chaldean Bishops
To His Beatitude Mar Louis Sako & Their Excellencies the Chaldean Bishops


15 January 2015

We offer our sincerest prayers and hearty congratulations on the occasion of the announcement of the approval by the Holy Father Pope Francis of the canonical election by the Synod of Bishops of Mar Basel Yaldo as auxiliary of the Patriarchate of Babylon of the Chaldeans, as well as the appointment by the Holy Father Pope Francis of Archbishop Amel Shamon Nona as bishop of the Chaldean eparchy of St. Thomas the Apostle in Sydney, Australia, and of Mar Emmanuel Challita as bishop of the Chaldean eparchy of Mar Addai in Toronto, Canada.

May the Lord who calls his chosen ones to this sacred Apostolic ministry bless our beloved New Bishops and strengthen them to offer back to Christ a holy people for the glory of God’s Name and for the prosperity of the Catholic Church and our Chaldean people.

We will be praying for their and your intentions at this Sunday’s Masses.


Your brothers in the Episcopate,
