Global Coptic Youth Survey
+ For the first time in our history, the Coptic Orthodox Church is conducting an anonymous global multilingual survey of Coptic youth regarding "What do the youth seek from the church?" as directed by His Holiness Pope Tawadros II and conducted by the Office of His Holiness. This survey is now available on CopticWorld and will remain accessible for 30 days. The results will be analyzed and sent back to church leaders for further study. This survey can be taken by youth or a family member or friend on behalf of youth.

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 brethren in Egypt who are suffering from persecution. 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 or Fr. 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.
