Updates regarding Liturgy bookings 

Dear beloved Congregation,

 

    “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (Heb. 10:23) 

 

Grace and Peace to all of you. 

Thank God for His grace and love for keeping His churches open and allowing us to have the blessing of attending the Holy Week events.

A new Booking System:

We are pleased to inform you that the church has now adopted the “Unity App” booking system for the Holy Week, and beyond. We trust you will find the new system much easier to use, but it will require each family to be registered once before they can book any event.

The Unity App is now available and open for registration.

The following churches will be accessible for booking on the system:

  • The Church of the Virgin Mary & St. Athanasius (including the Valley)

  • The Church of the Nativity

  • The Church of St. Philopateer & St. Anthony

  • The Church of St. Mina & Pope Kyrillos

 

Booking & Cancellation Policy:

  • If you book an event, but can’t attend, you will need to cancel by 7 PM the night before the event day. If you don’t cancel, the event will count towards your attendance limit. Your attendance will be tracked.

  • If you can’t book an event because it’s fully booked, spots will be released when someone cancels, up until 7 PM the night before any particular event.

  • If you can’t book an event because you’ve already reached or exceeded your attendance limit, the event may still be available to you at 9 PM the night before the event, if there are available seats.

Please pray to our Lord Jesus through the intercession of Saint Mary and all the saints to keep the gates of the church open to the faithful forever. May the blessings of the Holy Week be with you all.

We thank you for your cooperation.

 الأحباء المباركين

نعمة لكم وسلام

نشكر الله على نعمته ومحبته لإبقاء كنائسه مفتوحة والسماح لنا بنعمة حضور إسبوع الآلام بالكنيسة.

نظام حجز الجديد

يسعدنا أن نخبركم أن الكنيسة سوف تستخدم نظام الحجز "Unity App" لإسبوع الآلام وما بعده. نحن على ثقة من أنكم ستجدون النظام الجديد أسهل في الاستخدام ، ولكنه سيتطلب تسجيل كل عائلة مرة واحدة قبل أن تتمكن من أي حجز.

حاليا يمكن التسجيل للكنائس التالية للحجز

 كنيسة العذراء مريم والقديس أثناسيوس (بما في ذلك الوادي)

   Nativity كنيسة

 كنيسة القديس فيلوباتير و الأنبا أنطونيوس (أبو سفين)

 كنيسة مار مينا والبابا كيرلس

طريقة الحجز والإلغاء

 بعد الحجز و فى حالة عدم إمكانية الحضور، رجاء إلغاء الحجز قبل الساعة 7 مساءً في الليلة السابقة. إذا لم تقم بالإلغاء ، فسيتم إحتسابه ضمن حد الحضور الخاص بك.

 إذا لم تتمكن من الحجز فى أى يوم لأنه محجوز بالكامل ، فسيتم إخلاء الأماكن عندما يقوم شخص ما بالإلغاء ، حتى الساعة 7 مساءً في الليلة التي تسبق أي يوم معين.

 إذا لم تتمكن من الحجز لأنك وصلت بالفعل إلى حد الأقصى للحضور أو تجاوزته ، فقد يظل الحجز متاحًا لك إبتداءا من الساعة 9 مساءً في الليلة السابقة ، إذا كانت هناك مقاعد متاحة.

يرجى الصلاة لربنا يسوع بشفاعة القديسة مريم وجميع القديسين لإبقاء أبواب الكنيسة مفتوحة للمؤمنين إلى الأبد. فلتكن بركات أسبوع الآلام معكم جميعاً.

نشكركم على حسن تعاونكم.

ABOUT US

The church of The Virgin Mary and St. Athanasius started in April 1974 when four Coptic families organized a weekly prayer meeting for Coptic families and youth. The group met every Friday evening at one of their homes. The first meeting, in May 1974, was led by Father Marcos of St. Mark's Church in Toronto.  The meeting was named " St. Athanasius " after our Coptic father the defender of the Christian faith.

PATRON SAINTS ST. MARY

Her Birth

St. Joachim a righteous man and his wife St. Anna (Hannah) were stricken in years and had no children for Anna was barren. The children of Israel used to insult them because they had not begotten a son. Because of this, these two saints were sad, and prayed continually, and entreated God by day and by night. They vowed that the child they would beget would be made a steward for the temple.

ST. ATHANASIUS

He was born to pagan parents about the year 295 - 298 A.D. It happened that when he was in school, he saw some Christian children acting the Christian rituals some as priests, some as deacons and one of them as a bishop. He asked their permission to participate with them, but they refused saying: "You are pagan, and you are not allowed to mix with us." He answered them: "I am from now on a Christian." They rejoiced with him, they made him a patriarch over them in the play, they enthroned him on a high place, and they offered him honor and respect. At that time pope Alexandros passed by, when he saw them, he said to those who were with him about Athanasius: "This child would be in a great position one day."
