To the Editor

Dear Recipients - The following was sent to me by a Coptic Orthodox Deacon (convert
like myself) in the United Kingdom.  He is sent a newsletter from the Church of St. Mary
& Archangel Michael in PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA!!

From this YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY SEE that this Church, under the priestly leadership
Father Abram Abdelmalek, takes CURRENT AFFAIRS which impact on the morality and lives
of people here in Australia VERY SERIOUSLY INDEED.  
You can subscribe to this Newsletter - it is in English AND Arabic - which won't make it
too heavy going for those with limited English Comprehension.
I was very impressed by this MEANINGFUL PARTICIPATION of Coptic Orthodox
Church Members here in Australia in these issues which WILL reflect upon
us all - sooner or later!
HOW ABOUT we ALL follow the example of our fellow Church Members in
Western Australia and start - WRITING, E-MAILING, TALKING TO PEOPLE
that when the CRUNCH COMES and our Religious Freedoms are threatened
or taken away (you only have to look at the United States to see how easy
this has become for the ungodly Government there! ) we can at least
STAND and say - "We did our best - May Almighty God's Will now be done!
Yours is the Battle O Lord Our God!".
Remember the old saying - IF YOU DON'T STAND FOR ANYTHING,
This e-mail to you is a rallying cry - there is a general Christian Website
called THE AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN LOBBY that you can access to get
ALL THE LATEST NEWS on the Same Sex "Marriage" push and the Gender
Ideology which they want to teach in our Schools.  You can subscribe
to them - you won't regret it.
PLEASE read this seriously and FORWARD IT ON to Everyone you know.
God with us all and our Families and may Almighty God protect Australia
through the prayers of St. Mary and all the Holy Ones.
With Christian love
Eirene Angi Bennett

Dear Eirene and James Antony,
We really appreciate your kind words but most importantly your enthusiasm and your willingness to be part of the army of Christ. We are proud that we have posted your article.
We should not stay silent as you mentioned, we have to give witness to our saviour and to the expansion of his kingdom and in the same time we are obliged to expose evil as all our Orthodox Fathers and Saints did against Paganism, against Islam and recently against the new age and modern day cults and O'cults. We should stand together in prayers and preaching. 
God bless you and welcome to any of your contributions.

Fr. Abram Abdelmalek

Saint of the Week

St Takla Haymanot, the Ethiopian
He was born in a village nearby Jerusalem which was the share of Zadok and Abia-thar the priests during the reign of King Soliman, son of King David. Zadok begot Azariah, Azariah begot Zadok, who was named after his grandfather, and Zadok begot Levi, and so forth till the father of this saint was born. His name was Tsega Ze-Ab (which means the Grace of the Father) and he married a woman whose name was Sarah. They were righteous, God fearing and very rich. They always celebrated the commemoration of the honorable Archangel Michael on the twelfth day of each Coptic month, and gave alms to the poor and the needy.

سـيرة قـديـس هذا الأسبوع


القديس تكلا هيمانوت الحبشي


ولد في 24 كيهك في قرية قرب أورشليم كانت نصيبا لصادوق وأبياثار الكاهنين في عهد الملك سليمان بن داود فصادوق هذا ولد عزاريا. وعزاريا ولد صادوق علي اسم والده وصادوق هذا ولد لآوي. وهكذا إلى أن ولد والد هذا القديس وكان اسمه سجاز آب (أي نعمة الأب) ثم تزوج بامرأة اسمها سارة وكانا كلاهما بارين خائفين الله وغنيين جدا وكانا يعملان تذكارا لرئيس الملائكة الجليل ميخائيل في اليوم الثاني عشر من كل شهر ويقدمان صدقة للفقراء والمساكين أما سارة والدة هذا القديس فكانت حسنة المنظر جميلة الطبع متحلية بفضائل كثيرة لذلك دعوها اكزيهاريه (أي مختارة الله) غير أنها كانت مرة النفس متوجعة القلب هي وزوجها لأنهما لم يرزقا ولدا يقر عينيها وكان زوجها أيضا يذهب إلى الكنيسة وقت رفع البخور ويعلم الشعب أصول الإيمان وفي كل مرة كان يأخذ معه من ماله الخاص تقدمه لبيت الله ثم اتفق الاثنان علي توزيع أموالهما علي الفقراء والمعوزين والأديرة والكنائس. وفي ذلك الحين مات الملك وجلس ملك آخر عابد الأوثان. فهدم الكنائس وبني هياكل الأوثان وظلم وسلب وسبي النساء وضمنهن اكزيهاريه أم القدس ولكنها عادت إلى زوجها بسلام فمجد الله وسبح اسمه القدوس وبعد ذلك ظهر لهما ملاك الرب في رؤيا الليل وبشرهما بميلاد هذا القديس.

Let us all honour marriage

The immediate purpose of the website is to provide support for Australians who understand, and those who seek to understand the need to leave the definition of marriage just as it is now   –  between a man and a woman.
The subject is extensive and sensitive - preparing this website has been challenging. The website is not represented as being either complete or infallible, but there is certainly enough here, including from both the Christian perspective and the perspective of our Government, to demonstrate the wisdom of retaining the definition of marriage as it now stands in the law of Australia.

Same-sex marriage and the SOGI ideological agenda

The experience of Canada and the U.S. raises serious questions about attempts in Australia to legalise same-sex marriage and to expand anti-discrimination law.
Same-sex marriage is part of a libertarian-sexual revolution that involves having all sexual orientations or gender identities (SOGIs) as legally protected attributes of the autonomous individual. The revolution also involves legal and cultural attacks on the institutions that teach sexual morality – the family, the churches, schools and the law.

On August 11th Australia came perilously close to redefining marriage to include homosexual and lesbian couples. This battle to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman is far from over.
Australian Christians is a founding member and supporter of Unity Australia and it's plan for a nationwide public celebration to thank God that the recent attempt to redefine marriage failed.
To provide Christians and family minded people with an opportunity to demonstrate their support for marriage, and to inform the general public of the unseen implications of changing the marriage act.

 How proponents of same-sex marriage shut down debate


Dr Ryan T Anderson and Lyle Shelton delve deeper into the marriage debate: surrogacy, assisted reproductive technology and comparing dissenting views with racism...

It's not just marriage, the agenda is much much broader than you think!

Firstly, there is hope!  We have a strong chance of winning a plebiscite or referendum on marriage if the Coalition is re-elected next year.
When the issue is put accurately Australians support a child's right to a mum and dad more than the claim that two men or two women can marry and found a family. (See polling)
Therefore, it is time to understand the agenda of the LGBT lobby more deeply.
Today we ask you and your contacts, businesses, community and religious leaders to study our new brochure Who Will Be Prosecuted.Once you have read it through, please think of people you know that should be aware of the SOGI (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity) agenda. Perhaps you local pastor/priest or school principal should know? Perhaps you are the only one that can alert them?

Australia: Muslim pedophile not charged because of “cultural differences” still stalking children

Here is the tolerant West at its most suicidal: after Ali Jaffari was charged with attempted child-stealing, “Magistrate Ron Saines said if he was hearing the matter, he would have reasonable doubt, citing ‘cultural differences’ as one factor, which would result in the charges being dismissed.” Jaffari is “an Afghan refugee, was convicted in Geelong Magistrates’ Court on August 22, 2013, of indecently assaulting one boy and attempting to indecently assault another.” Jaffari explained:

Archeologists Discover A 4000 Year Old Archeological Find Linking Allah To Lucifer And The “Harlot Religion”

4000 years old is as close as we can get to connecting how old is “Allah” as deity, his relation to the great rebellion, sex, war … everything.

Amid excavations at four different ancient sites in the Central Anatolian province of Yozgat in the Uşaklı Mound at the Büyük Taşlık village in Turkey there laid a cuneiform tablet unearthed after laying there for 4000 years (2,000 B.C.) The cuneiform tablet in the Sorgun district of Yozgat shows symbols of Ishtar, known as the Hittite goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality. Ishtar or “the queen of harlots” goddess was found mentioned more clearly in this cuneiform than those on any other unearthed tablets.4000 years old is as close as we can get to connecting how old is “Allah” as deity, his relation to the great rebellion, sex, war … everything.

Destruction of Christian churches in Syria continues: 
Islamists use heavy equipment to tear down the Catholic monastery Mar Elian in Syria

Following last Tuesday’s murder of Palmyra’s renowned chief archaeologist, Khaled Asaad (82), extremists of the “Islamic State” (IS) continue to destroy Christian churches and monasteries in Syria. On Thursday, they started to use heavy equipment to tear down the Syrian Catholic monastery Mar Elian in Al-Qaryatayn, central Syria. Mar Elian, probably built in the 4th century, is one of the oldest monasteries in the country. “The Islamist extremists are trying to obliterate the peoples’ memories of the two thousand years of Christian history by destroying Christian churches and monasteries such as the monastery Mar Elian,“ says Dr. Kamal Sido, Middle East consultant of the Society for Threatened Peoples. 
In the night of August 6, 2015, IS-militias occupied Al-Qaryatayn. On the next day, the Islamists abducted at least 230 people. The small town is located close to the Syrian semi-desert to the north-east of Damascus (110 km), between Homs (85 km) and Palmyra (160 km). The town’s name means “two villages”. In 2004, Al-Qaryatayn had 14,208 inhabitants – Sunni Muslims and Christians.

At least 81 Christian churches and monasteries in Syria have been destroyed since 2013, as well as parts of the historic Christian city Maalula, which is located to the north of Damascus. In March 2015, IS-extremists destroyed several Assyrian churches in the villages along the river Khabour in the northeast of the country.

Apologies from Bayview Geographe Resort 

After the miss-conduct and non-professional practice of the Bayview Geographe Resort in Busselton, and after lodging formal complaints to concerned buddies the vice president of Bayview Group contacted the Church several times to apologize and after that he sent this formal email to express his sincere apology.
As Christian people, we accepted the apology disregarding all the cost and  effort we endured.

 Dear Father Abram,

It was under very unusual circumstances that we have spoken to each other - but before I proceed further let me apologise sincerely for all the misgivings that resulted in the position you were left with - to hold this prestigious Annual Church Conference of the Coptic Church with Bayview Geographe in Busselton..!
 Let me personally assure you that in future – in case of any of the Church conferences or any other events or even for a holiday – do let me know and I would personally be involved and will ensure that ALL things will work out to your desired expectations..!
 I know you were extremely upset but once again let me apologise for the incident and hope you will forgive us and we can set the path of moving forward..! Do keep in touch and let me know when I can be of assistance to you and the Church..! We do value the relationship and please don’t hold it against us..!

 Warm Regards

 Mathews Abraham
Vice President of Operations (Melbourne) &
General Manager – Bayview Geographe Busselton

SMOS Activities


SMOS’s back2skool program

The back2skool program was initiated By Saint Mary’s Out Reach Services (SMOS) in February 2015 to provide school supplies and breakfast food for the disadvantaged student.  As Jesus taught us: “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise” (Luke 3:11).
SMOS has managed, with the help of our congregation family and friends, to raise donations of stationery supplies and breakfast food. Stationary packs were then prepared by our youth. Each pack contained; 2 note books, a pencil case, an eraser, a sharpener, a ruler, a set of coloring pencils and different color pens.
For semester 1 of the academic year, SMOS has donated a total of 68 of the stationery packs to one of the poorest schools in the northern suburbs. The packs were distributed to the disadvantaged kids by the head of school. 
In July 2015, SMOS hosted a fundraising event to raise money towards a bigger amount of donations. The back2skool fundraising event aimed to be a family fun day for parents and children. Activities during that day included backyard games, Xbox tournament, a quiz game, along with many baked cakes, cupcakes, lollies and chocolates. With the grace of God and the generosity of our very own community, SMOS had collected enough money to provide 100 packs of school supplies and 500 breakfast meals to two schools.
SMOS will continue to collect donations and arrange school supplies and breakfast food as an ongoing support for our local communities and disadvantaged children.

Off the plan
off the plan means buying a property such as a unit, before it has been built.
Owners corporation
Previously known as body corporates, owners corporations are the administrative bodies in strata schemes, such as 
apartment blocks. The owners of all the block’s units are members of the owners corporation and make joint decisions on issues such as maintaining the property and resolving disputes.
Before you start looking for your property, your 
lender can give you conditional pre-approval for a home loan. This means you’ll be ready to take action as soon as the right home comes up. Once you’ve found your home, your lender will verify your financial position and make you a final loan offer.
Pre-purchase inspection
Most buyers have a 
pre-purchase property inspection undertaken by professionals so they find out about any structural or pest problems before a sale goes through. It’s also known as a pest and/or building inspection.
