Coptic Liturgy Recording
« on: February 28, 2010, 02:50:53 PM »
I really liked this recording of the Coptic Liturgy in English, from the Cathedral at Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt. It shows you how everything's done in the altar, etc.

wow...that's more English than my parish does, even when we do our liturgy mostly in English.

I remember when taking to my grandma to a Liturgy that did an all Arabic liturgy that particular Sunday, she was very happy, commenting on how the church here uses more Arabic than in Egypt.  How ironic that a Sharm el Sheikh cathedral uses more English than our parish.

I didn't realise there were any Egyptians left in Sharm. I thought it was all Russians and Brits.

lol...ya, I got that impression too.  Probably the Egyptians who live there are mostly working in resorts and hotels and businesses around them (and families with them).  I saw a Kyrollos working as a waiter in a resort  and bartender during the night.

What's interesting is that the Egyptians workers hate Egyptians who come to the resorts, especially during meals, since we tend to eat more at the buffets.

Lol! I think the buffet thing is true for all immigrants going to their countrymen's restaurants. Same here.  ;D
