  5. Maintaining a peaceful heart

Coptic Language

Coptic language is inseparable from our identity as Coptic Christians.

When we pray in Coptic our hearts and spirits are in harmony with the desert fathers, martyrs, patriarchs and all the Egyptian people for almost two thousand years.

Hymns

The hymns represent a valuable inheritance, which dates back to the apostolic age unchanged. Thus are regarded as part of the Church.

Master Chef

Cooks are challenged to prepare foods in accordance with a list of common cooking techniques or styles, or to replicate a particular cooking method of a dish.

08

Music

Music is considered to be an essential component of the creation in the human soul, to balance the human soul and the human feelings.

Praises & Choir

Praising God is not just a group activity. The teachings and traditions of our Church fathers clearly show how praise is considered prayer and how God’s presence could be felt during praise that flows from the heart.
