Welcome from Archbishop Suheil, 14th Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem


Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Jerusalem. I hope you will find it informative and interesting and I encourage you to engage with our work and mission here in the Middle East.


The Diocese of Jerusalem covers five countries and is home to almost thirty parishes. Our healthcare and education ministries are active and growing across the region with the provision of hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, and schools. Alongside these ministries the Diocesan Peace and Reconciliation department continues to work at strengthening the interfaith dialogue with our fellow Jews and Muslims. Our Kids4Peace programme in turn strives to educate the next generation in a language of tolerance and acceptance.

It was followed by a celebration of Holy Eucharist. The week and the liturgy set a very positive spirit of Christian renewal and commitment for the Primates in the lead-up to this summer's Lambeth Conference.

After crossing over the Jordan, the Archbishop of Canterbury and four other representative Primates joined Archbishop Suheil in an official visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where they were greeted by Archbishop Aristarchos of the Greek Orthodox Church. Together they visited both the Chapel of Calvary and the Empty Tomb and offered Prayers of Thanksgiving for Christ's sacrificial death and glorious Resurrection, as well as for the peace of Jerusalem and the entire world.

On this last business day of the Primates Meeting, Archbishop Suheil shared with the assembly some of the challenges that the Diocese of Jerusalem faces in its ministry within the Holy Land. We also listened to other Archbishops tell chilling stories of persecution against Christians within their Provinces, as well as the heavy-handed governmental oppression of their churches. Please continue to keep the Persecuted Church in your prayers
