  • Can't really help ya out on the west coast...
    but on the east coast i know theres the ECCYC, East Coast Coptic Youth Convention, and it's coming up very soon... u can check out or .com, i forget which... but also, theres a family convention in connecticut and i also believe in lancaster PA... there family conventions and several families attend, its usually on memorial day weekend, but this year it will take place on july fourth because the bishops are all meeting in Egypt for that annual meeting.... hope u know wut im talking about
    i know Abouna Abraham Azmy is in charge of the one in CT... but i forget who's in charge of the one in PA
    and of course, theres several college and graduate winter and summer conventions on the east coast... but as far as teh west coast goes

    if you're going on ECCYC in the summer, i suggest your bring your own fan.. hehehe. Althought the words you recieve are a living water to your spirit, your body may be thoroughly burnt by the end of the retreat... :)
  • mary, i couldnt of agreed with you more!!!
    also... if ur allowed, bringing some snacks isnt such a bad idea either ;)
  • i was recently told that H.G Bishop Angaelos of the U.K might also be joining the h.s boys session of ECCYC... lucky guys..hehehe.
    so that add one more Bishop to the list... hopefully.
  • Bishop Angaelos? That guys awesome. He's really really cool.
  • Is there ANY news that we MIGHT be able to get Anba Angaelos???!!!
  • last i heard (over the weekend) he'll only be able to join us east coast-ers for a few days... the projected dates fell between either the college session but greatly favored the h.s boys session.. sry to disappoint you.. but i'll update if i hear anything else!
