Celebrating 48 Years of Priesthood

Fr. Sabri Kejbo Celebrates His Anniversary

On June 2, Fr. Sabri Kejbo celebrated his 48th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood. The clergy who were present after breakfast celebrated with a cake. Fr. Sabri was ordained to the priesthood on June 2, 1968. The ordination took place in Baghdad and was presided by His Beatitude, Patriarch Polus Shekhu II. In 1999, a second parish was opened in El Cajon to minister to the many faithful flooding into San Diego. Fr. Sabri has been pastor of St. Michael Chaldean Catholic Church since its foundation in 1999. We pray that Fr. Sabri may continue to serve his people with grace and wisdom for many years to come.
