Our Beloved St. George Church need your help

Raised by 2 people in 12 days
Our beloved St.George’s Coptic Orthodox Church in Surrey BC is in need of your help. We moved into our church in April of 1998 and His Holiness Pope Shenouda III consecrated it shortly thereafter, so it is very special to us and we need your help in renovating and maintaining it. As a church that not only serves the Coptic Egyptian community, but also the Eritrean, Ethiopian, Syrian and Iraqi Orthodox communities, our congregation has grown larger and therefore we are outgrowing our Sunday School classrooms, our playground and our building in general.

The church is currently seeing many newcomers, immigrants and refugees come into Vancouver and therefore it is assisting these families in settling into a new home and country. A large portion of our congregation are low income families who cannot financially help with this project. With this being said, we are needing your assistance to build a second level in our church to accommodate the growing rate of children and youth as well as to ensure that the building itself, which was built in the 1960’s, is well maintained.

While we appreciate your financial help, please know that we also appreciate your prayers as well. St.George’s Coptic Orthodox Church has seen many generations grow, many young adults get married, children baptized and has heard a lot of prayers and tears. It is home to many who come to seek God and to raise their children in a safe place. A little can go a long way, we thank you for helping in any way you can.
