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.
