Dear Brother Priests,
I join with Chorbishop Dominic Ashkar and his parishioners and invite you to concelebrate a Diving Liturgy for Christians of the Middle East at Our Lady of Lebanon Church, 7164 Alaska Ave NW Washington DC 20012, Thursday September 11, 2014 at 7:30PM.
The Liturgy will be celebrated by His Eminence and Beatitude Bechara Peter Cardinal Rai, our Maronite Patriarch, in the presence of Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, and Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, Papal Nuncio to the United States, as well as other Catholic and Orthodox Church leaders and faithful.
The Divine Liturgy will be followed by a reception in the Church Hall and Seminary Library. If you plan to attend and concelebrate, please RSVP by email directly to Chrobishop Ashkar: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please let him know how many parishioners, if any, will be with you. Please bring a full set of white vestments with you for concelebration.
In solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ who suffer so much, I hope to remain, Sincerely yours in Christ,
+Gregory John Mansour
