A serene baptism at the Jesuits in Alexandria

November 26, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

The Jesuits Cultural center in Alexandria has been a welcoming home for me when I landed in Egypt 10 years ago.  It is there that I made the acquaintance of so many of my Egyptian friends and it is also the place where I received the most relevant and soul piercing spiritual advice that would completely change my life.  So I was over the moon when my dear friends Karine and Bassem invited me to the christening of their son Daniel at the Jesuits.  The baptism was performed according to the Catholic rite, in the presence of close friends and family.  Bassem is a musician and I was touched when he picked his guitar and joined mommy, little Daniel and the small choir of friends gathered for the baptism for a few hymns.  I’m so thankful for this day full of serenity and wish this beautiful family, my dear friends, a blessed life. Below you will find just a few of my favorite moments of the ceremony.  Cheers everyone!

The Jesuits Cultural center has a very diverse and open cultural presence in Alexandria.  If you are visiting Alexandria, you should definitely check their calendar of events to see what they’re up to and find a reason to visit them.  You can find them online here https://www.facebook.com/JCCAlex
