Presentations by International Author and Speaker, Dr. Maria Khoury

We were blessed to have a visit by Dr. Maria Khoury, who has published articles world wide in newspapers and magazines that have been translated into many languages, bringing awareness of the Christian presence in the Holy Land.  She began her visit at St. George by reading her book, “Christina Goes to the Holy Land” to our church school children.  She then joined us for Liturgy, and spoke to the parishioners about her Christian community in Taybeh, Palestine.  Next, she had a book signing at our church coffee hour, and joined us in fellowship for the Myrrh Bearing Ladies’ banquet at Oakmont Country Club.  Dr. Khoury raises funds for the Taybeh Orthodox Church Housing Project to build skeleton  homes that allow families to maintain their presence in the Holy Land.  She also founded the Taybeh Education Fund as an endowment to help students with university tuition.  She has also authored a series of Christian children’s books.
