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 those suffering from the recent violence against our Coptic brethren. This donation is intended to be an additional offering over and above our 10% tithe and will be collected separately and sent each month to 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 directly.
