Qatar: confirmations

Two confirmation eucharists, one in English and one in Tamil, were celebrated by large congregations on Friday 21 April in the church of the Epiphany, Doha, in Qatar. Archbishop Michael presided at each, assisted by the Reverend MD Johnson as well as Canon Samuel Ugwuneri and Deacon Kingsley Douglas Rasiah.

Among other gifts the archbishop was presented with an icon of the theologian St Isaac of Qatar, later Bishop of Nineveh and finally a hermit in Syria, who was a seventh-century AD native of what was then called Bet Qatraye.
