St Irenaeus Orthodox Theological Institute

One of our Pre-Master students, Yonas Dessu, was elevated to the priesthood on October 2nd, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross in the Eritrean-Coptic Amanuel Church in Kristiansand, Norway. On this occasion, seven men were ordained by Bishop Paulos of the European Dioceese, led by His Holiness Patriarch Abune Qerlos I. Father Yonas will mainly serve in the Archangell St Michael Church in Drammen as well as in other churches in Norway.
