With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Basilios, on Sunday the 24th of September, St. George’s Cathedral in Melbourne welcomed Reverend Father Isaac Wehbe, his wife Khouriyeh Nada, and their two children, Evangelos and Marina.

Father Isaac was Balamand educated and belonged to the parish of St. Antonios in Furn El Chebbak, Mount Lebanon. Father Isaac and his family were greeted on their arrival on Friday morning by Reverend Father Jack Lutfi, as well as members of the Parish Council, Ladies Committee and Youth.

The congregation of St. George’s Cathedral was very blessed to have His Eminence Metropolitan Basilios presiding the Divine Liturgy on the feast days of St. Thekla, Equal to the Apostles and St. Silouan the Athonite. His Eminence welcomed and introduced Father Isaac to the parish and invited him to say a few words. Father Isaac and his family were then presented with a gift from the St. George’s Youth. Following the Liturgy, many of the excited parishioners were given the opportunity to meet Father Isaac and his family in the Community Centre. His Eminence expressed his gratitude to the very Reverend Father George Nasr as well as the Parish Council and the Ladies Committee for being very hospitable to Father Isaac and his family.

We are very excited to welcome Father Isaac, Khouriyeh Nada, Evangelos and Marina to our family at St. George’s Cathedral. We pray that our Lord Jesus Christ strengthens this beautiful family throughout their new lives here in Australia.
