Thursday Doors-St. George Coptic Orthodox Church

Copyright © 2017 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Last week we had some Glorious weather. After the rain we’ve had to have such a sunny day and stay inside or in the backyard would have been nuts! I took #1 Grandson to the park to play, and because it was nearly Spring, and so warm, and sunny I decided it was the day to continue the tradition of a Spring visit to DQ for the ice cream of his choice. I did that with my son, and my daughter so I’d start with a new generation. It was time.

I took a different route to the nearest DQ and found this beauty. I started to pull over to take some photos for Thursday Doors, but the wail and screech from the car seat in the passenger seat from 4 yr old #1 Grandson about the delay in getting that promised Dairy Queen Chocolate Milk Shake; his choice was ear piercing and convincing enough for me to slowly drive by it vowing to, “be back!”. I had no idea this beautiful building was here!

Two days later after my Salon appointment sans #1 Grandson, I took a detour and went back.

St George Coptic Orthodox Church

I had the wrong lens with me. I needed an ultra wide angle. So, I added some canvas at the top to give the image a bit more room at the top.

For the History Buffs– The Churches website says:

They were founded in 1995.

“We are St. George and St. Joseph Coptic Orthodox Church of San José and Silicon Valley.  We’re a mid-size, tightly-knit church with a 2000-year history.  In fact, the Coptic Church is one of the oldest in the world.

  • We are Christian, so we follow the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
  • We are Orthodox, so we adhere to the faith represented in the early Church many centuries ago.
  • We are Coptic, which means that many of our traditions and practices are derived from our Church’s origin in Egypt.
  • We are a Church, which means we regularly partake in divinely-inspired services as a community.”~
