Metropolia Welcomes New Clergy

Metropolitan Coat of Arms

The Very Reverend Demetri Moamar of Vancouver, British Columbia has been received into the clergy of our Metropolia. Prior to coming to North America, Father Demetri served in Damascus, Syria, as a Dean for the Patriarch of Antioch, His Beatitude, Ignatius IV, for fourteen years. His daughter, Mrs. Michel Najmeth, a god daughter of His Beatitude, Patriarch Ignatius, serves as cantor and choir director at St. Elias Cathedral in Mississauga, Ontario and director of sacred music for our Canadian eparchy. In Damascus, she was the director of music at the Patriarchal Curia.

Father Demetri will serve as vicar for the Metropolia in the northwest territory of Canada and the United States. He presently is serving parishes in Canada.

We welcome Father Demetri and may God grant him many years of service in our Metropolia.
