Through the grace and blessings of our gracious Lord, our parish held its annual Community Family Fair 2022 over the weekend of 14-15 May. This Fair is a chance to welcome the local and wider community to our parish in a family friendly environment to share our culture and heritage as well as our faith and Coptic traditions.
We thank each person who attended and every servant who worked and served tirelessly to make the Fair the success it was - success which is not measured through funds raised but rather through the love, unity and harmony shown amongst all, through Christ Jesus.
We send a special and warm thank you to the many guests and dear friends of our parish that we received across the weekend who attended and shared in this blessed event with us:

Vice-Consul Mr Khaled Desoky - Consulate of Egypt in Melbourne
