A joyful and thank-filled appointment today, marking the long and treasured relationship between Ottawa and Jerusalem.

This morning at St. George's Cathedral in Jerusalem, Bishop Shane appointed Archbishop Hosam Rafa Naoum to the Canonry of St. James of Jerusalem here in Christ Church Cathedral Ottawa. This very special recognition of the relationship between our dioceses is marked as Bishop Shane leads a pilgrimage of clergy and lay readers in the Land of the Holy One. We continue to pray for the pilgrims and for peace in Jerusalem.
