"Our shirts were made for the youth of St. George's Coptic Orthodox Church and all of the profits made for the shirts went to St. Paul and St. Athanasius' Missionary Group. We sold these shirts throughout the Holy Passion Week and planned for it to be worn on the Good Friday. This photo was taken after the prayers of Good Friday outside of the church in Brooklyn. Youth of ALL ages bought and wore the shirts, from 6 year old kids to college graduates, we all matched with these dark blue shirts commemorating the sufferings of our Lord Jesus Christ, as it says, "He was wounded for our transgressions; and by his stripes we are healed". The back of the shirt shows an outline of Jesus carrying his cross, which we are all called to do: to carry our own crosses in the world as he carried his. Just as he rose from the dead, we will also rise from our struggles through him!
Custom ink was extremely helpful with making the t-shirts, had amazing customer service, and great quality! We will definitely be coming back for more!"
