His Regretted Excellency Bishop / Sayedna / Sayidna Ignatius Ghattas, Eparch Emeritus of Newton (Our Lady of the Annunciation (Al Bisharah) in Roslindale, Massachusetts, United States)

His Regretted Excellency / Bishop / Sayedna / Sayidna / Ignatius Ghattas, Eparch Emeritus of Newton fell asleep in the Lord hoping for the Resurrection to eternal life on 11 October 1992.

When His Excellency, Archbishop Joseph Tawil, presented his resignation on reaching the canonical age for retirement at 75, the Holy Synod meeting at Rabweh, Lebanon, in July of 1989, proposed Archimandrite Ignatius Ghattas to be Bishop. On December 11, the Holy See gave its consent.

On February 23, 1990, Rev. Father Ignatius Ghattas was consecrated Bishop in St. Elias Melkite Catholic Church, Cleveland, Ohio. The reason was that Rev. Father Ignatius Ghattas had been appointed priest for that parish on February 19, 1955. Rev. Father Ignatius Ghattas was consecrated in the church which he had built, with Patriarch Maximos Hakim laying on his hands.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
