Who we are.

We are Christian, so we follow the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are Orthodox, so we adhere to the faith represented in the early Church many centuries ago. We are Coptic, which means that many of our traditions and practices are derived from our Church’s origin in Egypt. We are a Church, which means we regularly partake in divinely-inspired services as a community.

Coptic Praises and other Lessons

This is the first video in a series that will the hymns and praises in the Coptic Orthodox Church. In This video we cover the two different Tunes used in the Praises: Adam and Vatos. We cover Adam Psali, Theotokia, and Lobsh, as well as the Vatos Tunes for these praises.

The New Sanctuary

We’re in the middle of an exciting time at St. George. We’re currently building a new sanctuary to better provide for our growing community. You can check out some of the construction photos, or watch an aerial video of construction made by our very own George Fahmy, below.

The latest release of aerial video to date:

Published on Jun 9, 2014 This was filmed and recorded on the feast of Pentecost 2014. This feast celebrates when God sent the Holy Spirit to all the apostles and disciples, so they could spread the word of God through all the world. The hymns recorded in this video come from the Pentecost Midnight Praise, and are just some of the hymns chanted during the midnight praise. The full recording is 30 minutes long.
