We are pleased to announce that the new rector of the Syriac seminary will be Very Rev. Raban Dr. Youhanon Habil. Dr Youhanon was born in Hassaka in Syria in 1978 and studied at the Syrian Orthodox Seminary in Damascus.  He went on to complete a doctorate in theology and history of religions in Paris and was also awarded a doctorate in dogmatic theology from Athens University. He became a monk on the May 17th 1998 and consecrated priest on the August 6th 2000.

In his letter of appointment, His Holiness Ignatius Aphrem II congratulates Fr Youhanon on his appointment and prays for the success of his work in the seminary “in educating the students of the seminary and offering them the adequate theological formation based on the teachings and traditions of our Holy Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch.”  We also offer Dr Youhanon our congratulations and our best wishes for his new role.
