His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II celebrated the Holy Qurobo at St. George Patriarchal Cathedral in Bab Touma, Damascus.

His Eminence Mor Timotheos Matta Al-Khoury, Patriarchal Vicar in the Patriarchal Archdiocese in Damascus, assisted His Holiness in the Holy Qurobo.

During the Holy Qurobo, 25 children of Mor Aphrem Christian Education Center in Tabbaleh celebrated the ceremonial Communion.

In his sermon, His Holiness spoke about the Lord Jesus Christ’s words that He is the bread of life and explained to the children how we receive the body of Christ when we receive communion. He also spoke about the changes we have to make in our lives when we follow the Lord and how we should renounce sin and keep the commandments of the Lord in our hearts.
