Patriarch Welcomed Back to Iraq

A message from the office of Bishop Francis:

This past week the Prime Minister of Iraq welcomed our Patriarch, His Beatitude Mar Louis Raphael Sako, on his return to Baghdad. In welcoming the Patriarch, the Prime Minister stressed the importance of his presence and role in Baghdad and Iraq.

This is welcome and joyful news for the Chaldean Catholic Church and in thanksgiving for the return of the Patriarch to Baghdad after several months of issues, this weekend’s Masses will be offered for the Church, Her shepherds, as well as the country of Iraq.

Profession of Perpetual Vows

Please pray for our two brothers in San Diego who will profess their final vows in the Chaldean order of monks known as the Sons of the Covenant. May God continue to enrich our beautiful sister diocese of St. Peter in San Diego with vocations to the religious life and priesthood.

Message from Bishop Francis Kalabat regarding Fr. Andrew Seba

A Message from Bishop Francis Kalabat

My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is with a heavy heart that I have accepted Rev. Andrew Seba’s decision to leave active ministry.

God has a plan for each and every one of us, and while sometimes we may not know or understand His plan, we must accept and embrace it. Please pray for him during this time of transition.

On behalf of the Chaldean Diocese of St. Thomas the Apostle of the USA, we are all grateful for his service to our community and what he has contributed to our local church.

Please continue to pray for all our clergy, seminarians, and all those discerning priesthood and religious life.

May God continue to bless you always.

Bishop Francis Y. Kalabat

St. Thomas the Apostle
Chaldean Catholic Eparchy, U.S.A.
