Egypt 12% Project
In an effort to help our mother church in Egypt, our church is proposing a completely voluntary and optional 2% (or more) monthly income donation to be devoted to help our brothers and sisters in Egypt who are in need. This donation is indeed to be an additional offering over and above our 10% tithe and will be one of the suffering churches in Egypt. If you wish to participate in the blessing of this service, kindly give your checks (or cash) to Fr. Younan of F, James directly.

Service Schedule
When in doubt, the Service Schedule is kept updated on the left side of the website under "At St. Mary's" heading.
