Beloved spiritual Sisters and brothers in christ,
Our holy father His Holliness Pope Tawadros, with the unanimous consent of the metropolitans, bishops, and the 2 hegumens of the holy synod have unanimously consented for the arrival of His Grace Bishop Mina to be a diocean bishop for all of Canada abroad. This is a great blessing, as it will the first official archdioceses of Canada. It will also be the first diocese to be formed under the care and guidance of our Holy father His Holiness Pope Tawadros the second. We shall all be happy and rejoiceful. I request that all my Canadian coptic sisters and brothers to stay away from the political aspects of the church, since the church is spiritual institution, and one that is not political (HE Metropolitan Bachomious). Please pass the word. His grace will be ordained on Sunday March 10, 2013 in the Abbesaiya Cathedral of Anba Ruwies.
As has been stated, His Grace will have two metropolis maqars, or bishopric center, one in Western Canada, and the other on the east coast.
Pray for my weakness and glory be to God forever amen
