Of Blessed Memory

 

Bishop Justin

The Most Rev. Justin Abraham Najmy (1898-1968), a member of the Aleppian Basilian Order, served as pastor of St Basil’s Church, then in Central Falls, RI., for twenty years before becoming the first bishop for the Melkites in the United States. Appointed Apostolic Exarch in 1967, he served until his untimely death on June 11, 1968.

Archbishop Joseph

The Most Rev. Joseph Elias Tawil (1913-1999), a native of Damascus, Syria was a member of the patriarchal clergy. After serving at the patriarchal college in Alexandria, Egypt from 1936 to 1959, he was elected Archbishop of Myra and patriarchal vicar in Damascus. In 1969 he was appointed as our second exarch. In 1976 the exarchate was raised to the status of a full eparchy and Archbishop Joseph became its first eparch. He retired for reason of health in 1989. Archbishop Joseph reposed on February 17, 1999.

Bishop Ignatius

The Most Rev. Ignatius Ghattas (1920-1992), our second eparch (third bishop) was a native of Nazareth. A member of the Basilian Salvatorian Order, he taught for six years in the monastery school before coming to the United States. He served as pastor of St. Elias Church, Brooklyn, OH for 34 years before his election to the episcopate in 1989. He reposed on October 11, 1992.
