      Patriarch urges Orthodox community to boost its role

      BEIRUT: Greek Orthodox Patriarch Ignatius IV Hazim said Thursday it was
      time for the Orthodox community to promote its role in Lebanon,
      following years of marginalization in state institutions.

      The patriarch made his remarks during discussions with the Orthodox
      Gathering, which has recently resumed its efforts to boost the role of
      the community in Lebanese state institutions.

      “Our church has been marginalized and it is time for it to see light,”
      the patriarch said. Ignatius IV urged all members of the Greek Orthodox
      community to work together.
