Pledge Form for Coptic Center Project on Sip

Beloved of St George & St Shenouda Church,

As we close out the year and enter a new year, we would like to wish you all a year of blessings of love, joy, peace and prosperity. “The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build….” (Nehemiah 2:20) We would like to follow-up with you, beloved, on our previous message. On Sunday, December 20th, the Church Board, with the support of the Church Fathers, held a Town Hall Meeting for the entire congregation regarding the Coptic Center project on Sip Ave in Jersey City to update status of what is complete, current financials, and what is needed for the next phase to complete construction. As was discussed, the Church is in need of Pledges from all of her members as an additional contribution to current tithes specifically focused on the Coptic Center project to be made over the next 24 months. Your commitment to contribute the pledged amount over the next 24 months will greatly determine how the Church will proceed with the next phase of construction for the Coptic Center project.  Please complete the Pledge Form below by January 15, and kindly share it with anyone else you know that would like to share great blessings of building the Lord’s house. If you were unable to attend the Town Hall you may watch it on the St. George & St. Shenouda YouTube channel in either English or Arabic. Below are the links for your convenience: English: https://youtu.be/_u5Fg2Avais Arabic: https://youtu.be/H9hBnc5DSLI If you have any questions regarding this required pledge, please contact one of the Church Fathers, or send a text or voice message to (201) 200-1101, and we will respond as soon as possible.  God bless you for your commitment to securing a future for our community.

3rd Joint Statement Concerning Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

3rd Joint Statement Concerning Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Dear beloved congregations of the churches of the Archdiocese of North America in New Jersey and the Diocese of New York & New England.

Grace and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ to each and every one of you. We continue to pray for your safety and well-being and for the steadfastness of your faith during this difficult time.

We are facing an unprecedented situation in the recent history of our Church. In response to the global outbreak of COVID-19, communities throughout the world have taken extreme measures to attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus, including government-mandated lockdowns of entire regions. As you know, despite these efforts, cases in the United States have continued to rise and pose a significant health risk to individuals of all ages. Unfortunately, our community has likewise been impacted, as several parishioners and members of the clergy have tested positive for COVID-19.

In view of our spiritual and moral obligations and civic responsibility to cooperate with our leaders and make every effort to protect the wellbeing of our brothers and sisters throughout the world, the Church is cooperating fully with government efforts to implement social distancing. Out of our love and care for our congregations and our neighbors, we are suspending all liturgical services in all of our churches effective immediately and until further notice. Each church will continue to reach out and serve her beloved children through our various technological capabilities, and we will remain united throughout this difficult period in prayer and fasting. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your priest(s) or servants in the event of any need.

Although the church building may be temporary closed, the mystical spiritual church within each of us, with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our bodies as the Temple of God (1Cor 3:16;1Cor 6:19), is still open for prayer and offering an acceptable sacrifice to our Heavenly Father. In addition, during this period, the priests shall continue to pray liturgies in their homes upon the holy consecrated tablets which are used as portable alters and intercede for their congregation before the omnipresent God. We will remain united throughout this difficult period in prayer and fasting. We are all at your service if you ever need anything. Please do not hesitate for a moment to reach out to us.

May our Lord protect His Church and His children throughout the world, shorten these days and bring healing and tranquility to our land.
