Okay we have finally relocated, we arrived in Wichita this weekend. Now that I am somewhat settled I am panicking because the closest Coptic Church is 3hrs away. There are 4 Eastern Orthodox Churches here a tiny Greek one (they haven't returned my call yet) and three Antiochian (two are Eastern Rite and one is Western Rite). So should I just attend one of those?
Welcome to Wichita! We are blessed with one of the best Orthodox communities around. We have 3 parishes, all under Antiochian jurisdiction. We have our cathedral (St. George, Fr. Paul), our sister parish St Mary (Fr. Aaron), and a Western-rite (The Greek one no longer exists). We have some Ethiopians and Copts who attend both. If you decide to visit St. George, PM me and I can come by and introduce myself
Also, make sure to visit 8th day books, i think you will find it to be a blessing
