His Grace Anba Boulos, Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Ottawa, Montreal and Eastern Canada, has presided over a cheerful celebration of All Saints Day at the Coptic Church of Archangel Michael and St Mercurius in Laval, Quebec, Canada.
Organised by the church servants, the celebration featured a number of full-of-fun activities for all ages (from kindergarten to the university-students). Under the patronage of their beloved Fr Michail Atteya and the monk Fr Moussa al-Baramoussy, it featured prayers, hymns, and praise for the Holy Virgin, Archangel Michael, and St Mercurius (Abu-Seifein).
The celebration also featured personifications of a number of saints, simply narrating their stories for children for them to know more about the history of their Coptic Orthodox Church. All through the day, the children were treated to many kinds of the delicious chocolate they love.
The other 15 churches affiliated to the Diocese of Ottawa, Montreal and Eastern Canada, held similar celebrations to mark the day.
