We send our congratulations to H.E. Mgr Jamal Daibes on his ordination at St Catherine’s Bethlehem on 6 May as the Patriarchal Vicar in Jordan,  Bishop of the Latin Patriarchate in Jerusalem.

 Peter Rand, Vice Chair of Friends of the Holy Land writes, ‘Fr Jamal was the Founder Chair of our local FHL Holy Land Committee based in Bethlehem and remains a Director of FHL. We are indebted to him for his leadership and guidance over the last 10 years and offer him our prayers and support in his new role. Unfortunately, I could not attend his ordination but look forward to our meeting in Amman on 30 May at the end of my 12 day visit to the Holy Land, visiting every Latin and Anglican Parish in the West Bank as well as our partners in Jerusalem, Nazareth and Jordan’.

H.E. Mgr Jamal Daibes  has chosen the motto - "Mercy and Truth" (Psalm 85:10-11)
