St. Mary’s Fast Revival 2018

21 Aug

St. Mary’s Fast comes towards the end of the summer vacation and the Coptic year where everyone is thinking and praying for revival, reconnection with God and a new beginning. Throughout the Month of August, the church adopted the theme of “Honouring Women Month” and specifically during the fast, we studied and learned from the lives of many women either from the Scripture, Church history or contemporary saints. It was a joyful two week journey of vespers prayers, veneration of St. Mary, spiritual meditations and celebrating Divine Liturgies. Everyone who was in attendance felt God’s presence and were enriched spiritually. We always ask for the prayers of St. Mary to guide and protect our church and congregation.
