Mauritius: a new Deacon (& doctor) in the Orthodox Church




With the blessings of the Orthodox Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa Theodore II, the Very Reverend Metropolitan Ignatius of Madagascar ordained an Orthodox Christian Frenchman as Deacon. 
The new Deacon - a doctor by profession - Jean Cleper, will henceforth serve the Greek Orthodox Parish of Mauritius, in the exquisite Sacred Temple of the Transfiguration of the Saviour.
The Deacon and his wife, deaconess Sophia will be offering their services alongside the Head Presbyter, Fr. Mattey, who is of Swiss origin.
A new Orthodox presence will be shining even more from now on, in the Missionary land that is situated in the Indian Ocean and close to another, vibrant ecclesiastic nucleus - in the French-speaking island of Réunion.
