Sub-Deacon, chanter and parishioner Dr. Andre El Hajj was ordained a deacon during the Nativity Divine Liturgy at the Cathedral by His Eminence, Metropolitan PHILIP. Deacon Andre has been preparing for this day for some time by taking the St. Stephen Course of Studies, a correspondence course in Orthodox theology offered by the Archdiocese. Deacon Andre comes from a family of clergymen as his father is a priest in Lebanon and his brother is a deacon in London. We look forward to Deacon Andre serving at the holy table in our Cathedral and add our AXIOS!, praying that God will grant him, his wife Rania and his two children many years!
