Youth Day – March 18, 2012

Our beloved Church scheduled a Youth Day post SUN Divine Liturgy on Mar 18th at St. John the Beloved’s building.  Our guest speaker was Dr. George Tadros (Buffalo, NY, USA). 
He spoke about how H.H. Pope Shenouda III formed our Coptic Church Identity and how we can form and shape our own Christian Identity. 
In addition, he raised an important topic about being a Christian in different ways:  Physically and Morality, contemplation in the Divine Liturgy, and how Communion strengthens our spiritual life and mind.
 
We thank Dr. George for his time and effort, and looking forward to seeing him again.
