OCMC News - Ordination of His Grace Neophytos Bishop of Nitria
On December 21, 2014 His Grace Neophytos was ordained Bishop of Nitria by His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa. Mat God grant His Grace many years!

On Sunday, December 21st, 2014, His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, performed in the Holy Patriarchal and Cathedral Church of St Savvas the Sanctified the ordination of His Grace Neophytos, Bishop of Nitria, as reported by the Patriarchate's website. Participating in the eucharistic gathering and the ordination of His Grace were Their Eminences the Metropolitans Makarios of Kenya, Gabriel of Leontopolis, Patriarchal Vicar of Alexandria, as well as His Grace Meletios Bishop of Naukratis, Hegumen of the Holy Patriarchal Monastery of St Savvas the Sanctified.

Prior to his ordination to the episcopacy, His Grace Neophytos was one of over 160 mission priests in Kenya who are assisted through the OCMC's Support a Mission Priest program. In addition, he serves as Director of Archdiocese Affairs for the Church in Kenya and teaches at the Makarios III Patriarchal Seminary. We thank His Grace for his tireless efforts on behalf of the Church and people in Kenya. We pray that His Grace is blessed with many years as the new Bishop of Nitria! May more people come to the saving knowledge of the truth through the Orthodox Faith as a result of His Grace’s continuing ministry service.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
