St. Peter Diocese gains two new priests


IMG 5647St. Peter Cathedral was packed to the brim on Friday, April 10, 2015 for the priestly ordination of Fr. Ankido Sipo and Fr. Simon Esshaki. A truly historic event for St. Peter Diocese, the first two seminarians of Mar Abba the Great were ordained priests. The ceremony was witnessed by five bishops and over a dozen priests, not to mention the faithful who were so packed in the church that many were left standing or watching a live stream from the Hall. Hundreds of people also tuned into the live stream on to share in this monumental event.
