We are all very thankful to God and to our beloved father H.H. Pope Tawadros II for the blessed ordination of Eng. Martin Hanna to the rank of priesthood by the name of Fr. Thomas Hanna on August 20, 2017. The ordination took place at St. Bishoy Monastery in Egypt where our dear father is spending his 40 days in meditation and prayer. The entire SMSV congregation awaits eagerly Fr. Thomas’ blessed return and we pray for a fruitful time of enrichment in this holy monastery where the saints lived and worshipped.
