General Bishop and Patriarchal Exarch of the Archdiocese of North America.
His Grace had been ordained a monk and priest at the monastery of Anba Bishoy. He was consecrated a Bishop by His Holiness Pope Tawadros II as the General Bishop and Patriarchal Exarch of the Archdiocese of North America in August 2014.
His Grace celebrated the liturgy at our beloved Church on August 9, 2014 on His first inaugral visitation to a parish Church.
His Grace Bishop Karas celebrated His First Pastoral Liturgy in a Parish Church in the United States at our beloved David the Prophet & St. Karas Coptic Orthodox Church on August 9, 2014 (3 Mesori 1730 AM.) His Grace was joined by the Very Rev. Fr. Hedra. It was a historic and joyous occasion, followed by an Aghape meal with the entire congregation. May God Bless His service, and our beloved Pontiff His Holiness Pope Tawadros II for granting Him the ability to serve us.
