Bishop Gabriel Visits the Seminary of Mar Abba the Great

And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it, and stay with him until you depart. As you enter the house, salute it. And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it. (Matthew 10:11-13)

The Seminary of Mar Abba the Great had a special guest come to the seminary this past Thursday, November 19th, 2015 to receive a tour of the only Chaldean seminary outside of Iraq, His Excellency Bishop Mar Gabriel Kassab. Fr. Simon Esshaki, the Vice-Rector of the seminary, gave Bishop Gabriel a grand tour since it was Bishop Gabriel’s first time visiting the seminary. Before the  Bishop’s departure, we were fortunate by receiving a blessing from him. We thank Bishop Gabriel for blessing us by his presence, and we pray that the Lord strengthens him and the Holy Spirit guides him with all his works. We hope to see you soon, Bishop Gabriel!
