I was very fortunate to attend the European Coptic Clergy Conference in Venice over a number of days last week. There were more than 10 bishops from Europe, 150+ priests and monks, and some laity and priest's wives, and course His Holiness Pope Tawadros.

I'll be publishing a full report on this thread and some pictures. I was very blessed to be able to pray in the Liturgy celebrated at the new Coptic Orthodox Cathedral of St Mark, and was one of only two priests invited/commanded to address the conference.

The greatest blessing was the warm fellowship with so many priests from the UK and Europe.

It doesn't necessarily deduct that Europeans are "Coptic" ...
