Boulaq Center celebrates Christmas with the poor and the widows

On Wednesday 3rd of January, Bishop Mouneer along with Boulaq Center Team celebrated Christmas with the poor families and the widows. More than 125 ladies, of which more than 70 are widows, and around 70 children attended the celebration. The celebration started by words of prayers led by the Bishop. “What does Christmas mean? Why did Jesus come to earth?” was his message to the ladies. Afterwards, Bishop Mouneer honored 4 volunteers help in the center; Mariam Gaballa, Samira Masoud, Nema Shafik and Madona Samy. Because of their gratitude, Bishop Mouneer was surprised by “Thank You” gift from Mario, a blind child sponsored by Boulaq Center. At the end of the celebration, Christmas gifts were distributed to the families and the children.

Let us pray for the center as they do the good work of the Lord. Let us also pray for;

  • Heba’s family as her son recently became a drug addict after very difficult situations he encountered.
  • Marline, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer after being married for just few months.
  • Catherine and Beshara, a couple who were diagnosed to have Hepatitis C. This recent discovery will affect their work opportunities and their treatment costs 500 L.E. per month, more than what they can afford.

Gusour Cultural Center

My dear friends,
As I look back at 2017, I found that our Gusour (Bridges) Cultural Center has served 1,773 people. The vast majority of these are young adults, both Muslim and Christian. Those young adults participated in 40 different cultural events and workshops in the areas of photography, art, and sign language. There was also a monthly cinema club during which they showed films. They also held musical concerts. I am so encouraged by this, because All Saints has become so open to the community and engaging with all members of the community.
