The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem

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.

The Primates of the Anglican Communion completed their pilgrimage in Jordan at the Moses Memorial Church at Mt. Nebo Jordan. The Custodia Terræ Sanctæ are responsible for the site and we were generously led on the tour by the Custos himself, Francesco Patton, along with Fr. Raffaele Caputo. The primates spent time together in prayer, particularly for those primates who will be retiring before the next gathering.

The Anglican Primates who remained in Jordan travelled to Hlid Salt Jordan. Archdeacon Luay Haddad and Fr. Wadie N. Far were great hosts, describing the outreach work done supporting Syrian and Iraqi refugees, and introducing us to the amazing staff and students of the school, particularly the deaf-blind unit. The primates were shown great hospitality by students and staff alike including in sharing lunch altogether.
