St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church hosted today, Saturday Feb 20, 2016, a one day regional conference featuring Fr. Peter Farrington.

The topic was, "God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." This is not a study of the Liturgy, but a spiritual topic about how to live our Christian lives.

The first lecture, on community, can be downloaded here.

The second lecture, on continual prayer, can be downloaded here.

Fr. Peter is a priest of the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate, serving in St. George's ministry in the UK. He has put on conferences in Egypt and Italy with Fr. Dawood Lamey.
