ELEVATION OF HEGUMEN FATHER RAPHAEL HANNA

On Sunday, August 7, His Eminence Metropolitan Serapion along with Their Graces Bishop Abraham and Bishop Kyrillos celebrated the Divine Liturgy at St. Mark Church.

Father Raphael Hanna was also elevated to the priestly rank of Hegumen after serving at St. Mark’s parish for over 13 years.

He was ordained presbyter for the Diocese of Los Angeles on July 12, 1998 and served at Archangel Raphael & St. Mina Church in Palmdale, CA prior to moving to St. Mark Church in Los Angeles.

May the Lord continue to bless his service.

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.”

Malachi 3:10
