On June 2, 2018 H.G. Bishop Mina performed the “laying on the hands” and ordained Fr. Raphael Ghaly and Fr. Anthony Wadie to the order of priesthood. Fr. Raphael Ghaly was ordained on the Coptic Orthodox Church of St. Mina and Pope Kyrillos in Mississauga, ON and Fr. Anthony Wadie was ordained on the Coptic Orthodox Church of Archangel Raphael and St. Marina in Burlington, ON.
The ordination took place at the Coptic Orthodox Church of the Virgin Mary and St. Athanasius in Mississauga, ON and was attended by a few diocesan priests, visiting priests from nearby regions and laymen, as well as congregants of the Mississauga and Burlington Community.
We pray that the Lord bless Fr. Raphael Ghaly and Fr. Anthony Wadie and grant them wisdom, discernment, peace and tranquillity as they begin their new ministry.
