Fr .Vincent

Dear Brother Priests, Deacons/Subdeacons, Consecrated Men and Women, Lay Faithful

Please see the attached flyer promoting a virtual meeting with our Patriarch on Saturday March 27, 2021, 1:00pm eastern standard time.

Bishop Zaidan will host and I will be present as well. There will be an opening statement by the Patriarch and then he will be open to questions. It will be in Arabic and English.

This meeting will focus on the Patriarch’s call for an active neutrality in Lebanon, as well as a conference at the UN for Lebanon.

This is a difficult time for Lebanon. Our Patriarch leads the way towards a brighter future. Please promote this virtual meeting and support his efforts in any way you can.

Thank you.

+ Gregory
