Coptic Orthodox Church
edited December 1969
this is the 2nd survey.
how many orthodox schools are there...i noe bishop david opened one in kearny..but it only goes up to eight grade...i think it would be amazing if there was a orthodox highschool...that way u could learn about God even more..
You are lucky you even have one Coptic school, I wish we did. However I think, God Willing, one day we will.
why were do u live??? and i think we should have some...they would make a big difference in our lives!!
:)imagine a priest being our teacher...how GREAT would that be!!! ;D ;D ;D
well I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada- we have one small Church, one newly ordained blessed intelligent Priest (God keep him to us decades and decades) and a few Bishop visits that usually last from 1 - 4 days. In Egypt however I used to go to a school where a Priest taught me Religion and I was too young to appreciate that.... I could've asked him for a Mass, hymn classes and everything but I was just too young.....but he was a nice Priest and a funny one too, except that he would usually sleep in Religion class while we're doing assignmnets and he was so nice that he would see me cheating and say: "Please stop looking at Botros' paper Michael" and that was all, but hey, who cheats in RELIGION class?!?!?! What a kid I was ::) and sadly still am, sadly I don't even remember his name, but wherever he is God bless him greatly.
That's sad, just a question....is your dad a Priest?
When did he depart? and by the way I have a question, if your dad is a deacon then how did he help the Priest in the Mass?
It saddens me that everyday of my life that passes, I usually regret that I did not do much in it....I hope later on in life that will change, May God repose his soul in the Paradise of Joy.
im from Australia and we have HEAPS of Catholic skools, obviously coz the country is catholic...
id like to mention about the Catholic Masses, the whole skool masses:
1. its about 1hr long
2. they sing songs (which they call hymns)...today i went to one and they sang 'permission to shine' which is NOT a christian song at all!!
3. they have NO TRADITION!!
4. it wasnt in a church, but a hall, they didnt hang up a cross or anything....guess what?...they put a snoopy toy...!!!...and no cross or any sign of christianity!!
im not comparing our church with thiers, this is my experiences and the reason y i really dont ever ever enjoy it...
Wow, well in the Church I know, there is a Cross yet what annoys me is that they put flags in the Altar and sing O Canada, and I think that politics has nothing to do with Christianity or in other words [b][should/b] not have anything to do with Christianity. There's this verse that I think might be supporting my thoughts : "Give what is of ceaser to ceaser and what is God's to God" (of course that's not what it says exactly but pretty close)
I go to a catholic school and I think the Masses are not as fun as the ones in our Church. I especially hate there are no hymns can you believe it?
