Hello and greetings to all,
I'm new to this community, but I've been reading the forums for a while now. I decided to finally make an account :)
I was wondering, how does someone become a priest? Do you just ask your FOC to recommend you, and based on your 'record', so to speak, he grants that wish or no? Some enlightenment is needed here from my brothers in Christ :)
Also, are there any Coptic Orthodox Theological Seminarys in the USA? I know of 2 so far; one in Corpus Christi, Texas, and the other is somewhere in California. The one in Corpus Christi accepts high school diplomas as minimum to enter, and they offer up to a Master's in Divinity.
I'm in 10th grade...but it is getting close to the age where we must start to direct our life in a certain direction.
Yours in Christ,
