An agreement to establish the Commission was reached during the meeting between His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia and His Holiness Coptic Patriarch Tawadros II. That meeting took place during the visit that the Primate of the Coptic Church made to Russia in the period from October 28, to November 4, 2014. The first meeting of the joint working group for preparing the dialogue took place in Cairo on February 13, 2015. The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Synod of the Coptic Church approved the list of the Commission members, the former on May 5, 2015, and the latter in July 2015.

Representing the Moscow Patriarchate at the meeting were: Bishop Gennady of Kaskelen, co-chairman of the Commission; Hieromonk Stefan (Igumnov), DECR secretary for inter-Christian relations; Rev. Viktor Kulaga, representative of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia at the Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa; and Mr. Sergey Alfyorov and Mr. Ilya Kashitsyn, DECR staff members. The Coptic Church was represented by Bishop Serapion of Los Angeles, co-chairman of the Commission; Rev. John Paul Abdelsayed, a cleric of the diocese of Los Angeles, Dean of St Athanasius and St Cyril Theological School; Rev. Boulos Halem, Director of Media Center and official spokesperson of the Coptic Patriarchate; Dr Isaac Agban, Secretary-General of the Coptic Institute of Higher Studies; and Mrs. Barbara Soliman, Director of the Office for Church Projects of the Coptic Patriarchate.

At its first meeting, the Commission set priority goals for developing in the nearest future cooperation between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Coptic Church in academic sphere, in theology, in exploring monastic traditions of the two Churches, in pilgrimage, in social ministry and church-state relations.

PravMir didn't write it (mospat.ru is the original source) so IDK why it's emphasised in the title. This thread title sucks.

There is one name I am happy who is not in the list.

As for the names that are in the list, one in particular, Fr. John Paul, makes me even happier.  He is a true scholar and is very close to Fr. George Dragas.

I pray this is a good and new future for the dialogue, as it seems more promising with better and more intelligent qualifications.

Isn't this where the mods drop in and demand translations?

reasonably sure that Mor doesn't speak Hindi, Father.



Might I suggest ഇംഗ്ലീഷിൽ ഈ വാചകം വിവർത്തനം  as an alternate version of what you suggested

However, your point is well-noted...

Back to the OP, I hope that more than dialogue is accomplished during my own lifetime.

We've had a few cases of Copts coming to our church before, but they usually don't stick around for too long unfortunately.

We do feed people if they make it through to the end of liturgy.

That's true. :p The nearest Coptic church is roughly 2 hours away.

During this meeting, the Commission met with His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, who blessed the efforts of the Commission. The Commission plans to hold its Second General Meeting during the summer of 2017 at Astana in the Cultural and Administrative Center of the metropolitan district of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Just for the record, a few replies were split off and sent to Religious Topics. --Ainnir
