Hatfield Township, PA: new Coptic church to be built
« on: October 27, 2011, 12:45:31 PM »
The new building-to-be of St. Kyrillos Orthodox Church has been given approval for construction, in Hatfield Township, Pennsylvania. The parish has rented a nearby Baptist church during the wait.

From the article:
Quote
Copts in parts of Egypt have faced highly-publicized, violent persecution from groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. The church’s supporters say it will provide a safe place for Egyptian immigrants who have come to parts of Eastern Montgomery County, including Hatfield and Lansdale, in growing numbers.

The roughly $3 million project is expected to get under way early in 2012 as fundraising efforts continue.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
