Abuna Yesehaq Update

Late Ethiopian Orthodox Archbishop Abuna Yesehaq, who took in a number of Western Rite parishes before his death late last year, may have a street named in his honor in Kingston, Jamaica. The island's Attorney General, A.J. Nicholson, has asked Kingston Mayor Desmond McKenzie to rename Maxfield Park "Bete Salem," in honor of the late missionary archbishop. Nicholson is a former Rastafarian baptized by Abuna Yesehaq. Abuna was buried in Kingston last Thursday, January 19.
