Global Coptic Day
The inaugural Global Coptic Day was held on June 1. Founded by Nader Anise in 2018, Anise presented the idea in Egypt to bishops of the Holy Synod and His Holiness Pope Tawadros (the pope of Alexandria). All parties approved, and an annual Global Coptic Day was born, to be marked each year on June 1. Global Coptic Day is an annual celebration of the contributions made by the Coptic Orthodox Church and is aimed at encouraging members of the church to “PRAISE,” or pray, read, do an act of mercy, invite, service and educate.
