The Divine Liturgy
The Divine Liturgy is for the Christian, the meeting place of Heaven and Earth. In it the earthly gifts of bread and wine, symbolic of earthly life, become the Body and Blood of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and those who partake of this food for the soul are joined in a mystical life with Christ. So through the Divine Liturgy, the Life of Christ is extended into the every-day lives of His children.
Ultimately to know the will of God is the greatest of all educational pursuits, to understand the will of God is the greatest educational discovery and putting Christian education to use by doing the will of God is the greatest of life's achievements.
The Sunday School classes offered by our Church aim at achieving such goals, by teaching children the will of God, starting at a very young age, infusing in our children the spirit of the Coptic Orthodox church, and empowering both servants and students to continually grow in Spirit.
Youth and Graduates
The church recognizes the value of youth community building and the bountiful blessing of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ while you are yet young in years to have a lifetime to live for Him.
The Psalmist proclaims, "For You are my hope, O Lord God, You are my trust from youth" (Ps 71:5).
more info in the deacons page
The church recognizes the value of deacons because the Holy Order of the Deaconate is the third and lowest rank in the hierarchy of orders in the Orthodox Church, being subordinate to the episcopate and presbyterate.
The deaconate is a hierarchical order of 5 ranks: Archdeacon, Deacon, Sub-deacon, Reader, Psalter. It is considered as the extended arm of the priesthood as the priesthood is the arm of the episcopate. The term "deacon" is derived from the Greek Diakonos which means "servant".
