The Glorious Deacons School
If you ask a priest “What do you think about the role of the deacons in the church?”
He will much probably respond “They make us feel as we are in heaven as I’m praying the mass. They add a lot to the spirituality of the prayers and the feelings of the priest praying the mass”.
If you ask one of the congregation “What do you think about the role of the deacons in the church?”
S/he will much probably respond “They are the glorious image that adding reverence to the place and the prayers. They help us to visualize how heaven looks like with the cherubim and seraphim and the heavenly hosts giving reverence and praise to the Lord”.
If you ask heaven “What do you think about the role of the deacons in the church?”.
Heaven will much probably respond “They make us very happy in heaven because our Lord is smiling to them and says this is my beloved children follow them in praising”.
It is a dream became true to have this school starts at ST Mark, considering all age groups, languages (Arabic, English Coptic), rituals, spirituality of the different hymns and occasions and finally a school for ladies to learn hymns and praises in the church. It is the fruit of a lot of prayers of the fathers in the church.
I encourage you all to join and follow the moto of this school “Praise the Lord with Knowledge”.
