Art in Heaven 2010


On February 6, St. George and St. Shenouda’s Coptic Orthodox Church hosted the Art In Heaven Gallery at the historic Loew’s Theatre in Jersey City. Nearly 185 patrons attended the event, supported by about 30 participating artists. The gallery boasted over 70 pieces of art, from which 51 pieces were sold to the highest bidder via a silent auction. The event raised $10,157.57, which will go directly towards the building of a new church for the congregation. We would like to thank the artists for their contributions, the servants for their tireless efforts, and the attendees for their generous donations. May God give everyone their reward and grant them the heavenly instead of the earthly and the eternal instead of the temporal. May He also complete for us our New Building Project according to His will and plan. Thank you!
