Pimonakhos Issue 8 Volume 8

August 4th, 2014


We wish you all a spiritual start to St Mary fast on Friday the 8th of August. As was announced by H.H. Pope Tawadrous II that the Coptic church will dedicate the St Mary fast as a time for prayer and fasting for all our brothers and sisters in the Middle East in these hard times.

On the 26th of August 2014, it will be the 19th Anniversary of the Establishment of our Monastery. On this joyous occasion we would like to invite you on Saturday the 14th of March for the placing of the foundation Stone and the unveiling of the Plaque for the new “Complex Project” to encourage the Congregation to support this Monastery Project.

Last but not least we would like to thank all who helped and joined us for this year

June 10th, 2014

In the Month of May I have attended the joint priest conference for the diocese of Melbourne and the Diocese of Sydney which was hosted by Bishop Suriel in Melbourne. During the conference I was asked to give two lectures about Coptic Identity. This special edition of Pimonakhos has the script of the two lectures.

We would also like to bring to your attention our new service ASAPH TUNES which aims to channel the musical talents of some of our youth and to encourage them to produce contemporary music that teaches the Orthodox theology. Now we have a website that has more details about the different artists and their music.
