St Shenouda’s Monastery would like to announce that a fundraising dinner will be held to raise money for the proposed new building complex project.
Along with all the Fathers of the Monastery, HG Bishop Anba Daniel would like to invite you to join them on:
Sunday 28th of October 2012, at 6:30pm to fund-raise for the Monastery’s New Cathedral and building
Location: The Epping Club, 45 Rawson Street, Epping, NSW 2121
Ticket Price: $100.00 + any donation you wish to give on the night
St. Shenouda Monastery is the central hub for many church camps, family day-visits and youth retreats. They receive many visitors from all regions of Australia and
around the world, both from Coptic and non-Coptic backgrounds.
During these Visitations and Retreats, People come in search of Peace, Tranquillity and a Quiet-time spent with God.
Why is the Monastery raising funds?
The Monastery has always been a source of Blessing and Benefit to all those who visit.
Today, as the number of visitors increase, the Monastery finds a great need to develop larger facilities including the proposed Cathedral and service centres.
These are designed to help continue to serve the ever growing congregation as St Shenouda Monastery holds large events and special feast days on a regular basis.
The Monastery is an integral part to the community of greater Putty and Singleton and has always warmly welcomed and delighted visitors of all origins.
This project will be a great addition to our blessed Churches in Australia, and will serve the many generations to come.
What is Included on the Night?
The night will include special presentations from the blessed Monks, Priests and Abbot of St. Shenouda Monastery, H.G Bishop Anba Daniel. The night will include a detailed presentation on the Monastery’s plans for the New Cathedral and Buildings.
You will also be enjoying a delicious three-course meal; also, throughout the night a silent auction with a variety of beautiful items will be proceeding.
“…that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father Who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.” Matthew 6:4
The silent auction will be taking place on the night to help raise funds for the Monastery’s new project and is the perfect way to donate. The silent auction will be on going throughout the night and will close at 9:30 PM.
