Anybody going to convention...and if so which one and if you happen to know who are your bishops that will be joining you? and Finally, why do you want to go to convention?

For Me:
1. I'm going to MCOYC in BGSU
2. The bishops joining us this year Anba Moussa, Anba Antonious Morocs, and God willing and hopefully Anba Angelos...and possibly one more Bishop
3. I want to go to convention because i enjoy the freedom we get, like no parents i guess, i like the lectures, and the free time is fun too!


  • hey well i'm going to the mcoyc in ohio and i don't know the bishops who are going, but i like the convention because it's fun like with the free time, i get to see lots of copts my age, the lectrures, and bible studies too. ;D

God bless u all. :)

  • hahaha MCOYC was GREAT this year!! Mike Tanious!! it's vina from wi... whats going on? Pope Kyrillos who r u?? so Mike, u were amazing as Joseph =]
  • I have a question, who went to mcoyc because I went, and I didn't know any of you at all, but the penal and social discussions were great from all churches!

  • thanks vina....Coptic Servant: I'm from St. Mark's in Chicago we did the panel on purity and the play was a modern day Joseph...and i was Joseph
  • Wait, you were Joseph, really, I never knew that, you did a fantastic job, if you recognise me, I was from Minnesota-name is Nansy, we did Euthanasia for Penal, but we didn't get to do the social, hopefully next year, God willing, we will~ you did an awesome job, everyone from Minnesota, enjoyed the punk'd idea, great job! Congratulations on winning, you all did a fantastic job! I liked how you took the real story of Joseph and transferred it into instead of Pharoah you made the president, and I liked how you also took Anthony and transferred him into like 4 different characters, and also at Convention, it was my first year along with a lot of people too, my favorite part about Convention was the lectures by Anba Antounis Marcos, and Anba Moussa, for the younger ages, like from 13-14 we got a lecture from Anba Moussa about the pitcher and the 2 cups, it was amazing!

    hey I know u guys, nansy, (I spelled your name right this time!) n vina..
    mtanious, u were Joseph? ur skit was awesome.. But detroit is better! ;) na they were both great, and yours was planned out better than ours.
