St. Antonius Coptic Orthodox Church in Hayward, California, held the King Tut Festival, which offered Egyptian food, music and games. The event was a key fundraiser for the parish.

From the article:
There were also tours of the church facility, founded in 1976. The church is raising money for a 16,000 square-foot youth center that will include a chapel and a gym.

The Coptic church near me has a similar thing. I remember driving by and seeing a giant pharaoh bean bag toss. Very funny.
But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
