Mon, Jun. 10, 2019
CAIRO – 10 June 2019: Pope Tawadros II, pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, announced forming a new eparchy in South Africa, affirming that Egypt attaches great importance to Africa in light of its presidency of the African Union.

During his sermon on Sunday, Pope Tawadros said that Bishop Antonius Marcus has been ordained an archbishop in South Africa.

Also, a number of bishops were ordained to serve in Egypt and a number of countries.

The Coptic Orthodox Church celebrated earlier the day of the Ascension of Jesus, which took place forty days after Easter (the resurrection of Jesus), according to the Christian belief.

The Feast of the Ascension is one of 12 feasts celebrated by the Orthodox Church, as it marks the memory of the last time Jesus appeared to speak to his disciples after his crucifixion, according to the Christian belief.
