Lighthouse Summer Semester: Coptic Art

Updated: May 19

Dear Beloved of Jesus Christ


We are excited to announce the second semester of The Lighthouse where we will delve deeper into the world of Coptic Art


The Lighthouse is a program for those who are interested in studying the church’s history, her sacred texts, liturgy, significant figures, dogma etc. Join us every semester as we invite experts from around the world to teach us about an area of study, online through the Zoom platform.


Lectures will take place on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM (unless otherwise stated) on a bi-weekly basis. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the lectures live, but they will be recorded (without access to the Q&A) for those who are unable to attend. Registration will be $25 for the semester. For any questions and to send e-transfers please use 613lighthouse@gmail.com


In Christ,

The Lighthouse Team
