Egypt's Coptic pope to resume weekly sermon after extended hiatus
Published in Ahram Online on 18 - 08 - 2015

Egypt's Coptic Pope Tawadros II, the leader of the country's largest Christian denomination, is to resume his weekly sermon on Wednesday after a hiatus that lasted over a month, cathedral officials told Ahram Online.
The pope suspended his weekly address early in July due to renovations at Saint Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral. The renovations are in preparation for the cathedral's 2018 golden jubilee, which marks 50 years since its foundation in 1968.
The pope will preach his Wednesday sermon at one of the churches at the papal headquarters in eastern Cairo, where the cathedral is located.
Saint Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral is a prominent place of worship for Egypt's Coptic Orthodox community. It is also the largest cathedral in Africa and the Middle East.
The spokesman of the Coptic cathedral, Polus Halim, said earlier that the pope is expected to deliver his sermons at different churches across Egypt each week.
Egyptian Copts make up some 10 to 15 percent of the 90 million population, which is predominantly Sunni Muslim.
