  1. Do you know the address of saint moses church sterling verginia because I would like to go there
    Thank you very much

  2. Thanks for your wisdom by publishing the churches which bishop Michael is serving.

    For your information, H.G. Anba Paula of Tanta, delivered a letter from HH Pope Shenouda to St. Mark of DC, that Bishop Micheal is not responsible for this church (as the congreagation shocked by his visit during the Holy Week)and the 5 churches he is responsible for.

    So far all churches must know this.

    Thanks again
