Excellent Reception for Bishop Tarabay



Thanks and Congrats to the Australian Lebanese Christian Federation (ALCF) on their Excellent Reception for Bishop Tarabay

Maronites, Orthodox, Melkites, Syriac, Sunnis, Shiites, Druze......You name it...They all were there last night at packed Bellevue on the invitation of ALCF headed by President Wally Wehbe especially to honour the new Bishop His Grace Dr Antoine Charbel Tarabay.
The Maronite Catholic Society-MCS, World Lebanese Cultural Union-WLCU, in addition to almost every Lebanese and Arabic Speaking Organisation in NSW attended this happy and important reception for Bishop Tarabay who was accompanied by the ever-smiling and Down-to-Earth Bishop we all loved, his Grace Mounir Khairalla, Sponsor of Bishop Tarabay as well as representative of his Beatitude Beshara El Rahi, Maronite Patriarch and most Reverend Abbot Tannous Nehme, Superior General of the Lebanese Maronite Order.
Antoine Kazzi and Sayed Mikhael, Chief Editors of El Telegraph and Al Anwar respectively were the Masters of Ceremony and with their eloquent and poetic words they introduced the important speakers: Sheikh Mouselmani, Sheikh Zeidan, Maitre Aziz Azzi, prominent Lawyer who accompanied his Grace Tarabay on his trip back to Australia, Sydney Bank CEO and Reverend Abbot Tannous Nehme and the honoured Bishop Dr Antoine Charbel.
All the messages were excellent and in particular the final message delivered by his Grace Bishop Tarabay which called for Unity, Harmony, Faithfulness and Openness.....A promising chapter in the life of our Australian Lebanese Community in Australia.....which will undoubtedly and hopefully flow on to our beloved country Lebanon....
Unparalleled event within the recent past as it brought together the Community at large in all its dynamics and diversity.
Well done Wally and Sincere Thanks and Congrats to Members of ALCF.........
