EPO Newsletter “Pelican”

Indeed a New Year has come: the year 2017 has dawned.  This New Year 2017 is a special year for us in EPO in the sense that on 1st January 2017, on the Feast of Mary Mother of God and the first day of the year, we got the final text of our Post Capitular Assembly (which was held in Adigrat from 28th December 2016 to 31st December 2016).  This important document is a “Road Map”, a “Walking Stick” and a “Guiding Star” that will accompany us in EPO for the coming six years (2016-2022).
