Welcome from Archbishop Suheil, 14th Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem


Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Jerusalem. I hope you will find it informative and interesting and I encourage you to engage with our work and mission here in the Middle East.


The Diocese of Jerusalem covers five countries and is home to almost thirty parishes. Our healthcare and education ministries are active and growing across the region with the provision of hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, and schools. Alongside these ministries the Diocesan Peace and Reconciliation department continues to work at strengthening the interfaith dialogue with our fellow Jews and Muslims. Our Kids4Peace programme in turn strives to educate the next generation in a language of tolerance and acceptance.

This Sunday, 15th May, the Archbishop celebrated the Feast of Pentecost at St. George’s cathedral, which was overflowing with many pilgrims from across the world, as well as the Congregations from Palestine and Israel. This follows the annual tradition of the in-gathering of Clergy and Parishioners from across the Land of the Holy One at the commemoration of the ‘birthday of the church’ in Jerusalem, the city where the first Pentecost took place. It was a day of celebration, with two choirs, one English and one Arabic speaking, and a meal for the whole congregation was held at St. George’s School afterwards, where songs of worship and praise were sung during lunch.
