Axios! Axios! Axios! He is Worthy. He is Worthy. He is Worthy. With great joy, Bishop Nicholas Samra and the Eparchy announce the ordination to the priesthood of Father Zyad Abyad of St. John of the Desert Melkite Catholic Church in Phoenix, Arizona which took place on Sunday, January 9, 2022.

We congratulate Fr. Zyad, and ask God’s blessings upon him, Khouriyeh Jocelyn, and his family as he makes this profound commitment to the service of God and the Church.

God grant him many happy and blessed years!
