Life of Praise Convention 2011 - open for families
  • An announcement that was sent to me:

    -----------------------------------------------
    Christ is Risen!

    By the grace of God, Moallem Ibrahim Ayad has safely arrived to the US and is now residing with us in New Jersey.  In order to benefit from his presence with us, Bishop David has organized the first ever family hymns convention with Moallem Ibrahim Ayad in the US.  It will be in Somerset, New Jersey, next week from May 20 - 22.

    The convention is a family convention open to all ages so that all may benefit from his presence.  Anyone who is under 18 will need parental supervision to register at the hotel.

    Please sign up your whole family immediately online at WWW.NIHOV.ORG.  The deadline to sign up is May 18.  Space at the hotel is limited. 

    The details are as follows:
    Location: La Quinta Hotel
    Address: 60 Cottontail Lane, Somerset, NJ
    Dates: May 20-22
    Ages:      All ages; under 18 needs parental supervision
    Deadline: May 18
    Application:  www.NIHOV.org

    Please spread the word, make announcements, and forward this to all your youth meetings and to all your friends so that all may benefit.
    -----------------------------------------------

    I think we all should it take advantage of this opportunity. Last year the convention was successful as an alhan convention. Having Cantor Ibrahim Ayad around is a great blessing that we should take (i actually did today when we prayed with Fr.Markos & Fr. Gabriel Abdel-masseh and the cantor at St.Moses & St. Abraam in Piscataway, NJ.)

  • Great liturgy with him here in EB. Someone was recording it so I'm sure it will be online. Amazing liturgy. Oh and mina, we did a lot more than Shere el kabira  :P :P
  • Was he wearing a suit or the seminarian black robe?
  • Black Robe

    Any way you can send me those videos? youtube possibly?
  • Now that we are on the topic of Cantor Ibrahim Ayad, I heard something along the lines of he creating his own school for hymns and he an email list came out to those interested to attend their meetings. Is this true? Possibly the people who have the blessing of being with him can ask him? Thanks a lot.

    is this what you are talking about: مركز مارمرقس للدراسات الليتورجيه القبطيه = Saint Mark's Center for Coptic Liturgical Studies.
    a center that is done under the guidance of HGB Rafael with the church of downtown cairo. Antoun works a lot with them. Now this is very close to the set of HICS: different classes with different studies and therefore different teachers. It follows a higher education structure (schools yrs with 2 semesters) with many limitations thoo (age, ID, recommendations...etc)......what i also understood from the text is that they are working on bringing this to those outside egypt.......but i don't see that working because their site is down.

  • Minagir,

    Which one are you in the picture?
  • CIA's hairline looks like a dove. I think the rest of the deacons should copy.

    Also this picture is deceiving: all individuals are under 5 feet, there is no constant.

    That's because he dyes his hair.

    This is a nice recording. Is there a video of this available? And speaking of the recording, did CIA cry when he was chanting the first quartet of "Kata Nikhoros?" His voice cracked a few times as if he was crying. I ask this because when he was reciting the fourth gospel on Palm Sunday broke the same way and he let Anton finish it. Does anyone who attended with him notice him crying? If he was, does anyone know why?

    I admit, the last question is kind of silly to ask but it would be cool to know what he was crying about if he was really crying. lol

    He cried on Sunday at Saint Mary East Brunswick as he was saying the prayer for the departed for Egypt which was understandable. at the end of the liturgy after our father, he said "let's say our father again for egypt" and cried a little after that.

    Sorry I meant while saying the response.
  • Has CIA prayed any liturgies that are archived in the Live Broadcasts section?
  • I don't think so.
  • CIA was at St. George and St. Shenouda today the liturgy was recorded and archived today.

  • Is it possible to put that recording public ?
  • Is there a way to download these?

    Please tell me someone recorded it!
  • I can  ask the person incharge of streaming to post it
  • Thank you  ;D
  • Comments; video clip from St. George & St. Shenouda in Jersey City:

    1.  Couldn't make out from the visual it was CIA
    2.  Sound quality was poor

    3.  shocking:
        a)  two bishops entered and the deacons did not process them in by greeting
        b)  the priest, Fr. David, was carrying the bags for the bishops rather than the deacons
        c)  Bp. David was taking his coat off at the altar because there was no deacon to have
              taken his coat at the door.

    Deacons are servants and janitors.  They carry the bags, take the coats, greet at the door, summon the priest to tell him that the bishop has arrived, and get the cross for the procession.
