Happy Orthodox Easter: From Giza (2023)

Happy Orthodox Easter to all those celebrating it tonight, especially Egyptian Coptic Christians.

On this occasion, I would like to share with you the photo of the Great Martyr Philopater Mercurius Church or as commonly known as “Abo Sefein” Church in Giza governorate’s Mohandessin district on one fine morning.

The Church integrated in the 1970s I believe was named after the famous Saint Mercurius aka Abo Sefein aka The Father to two swords. 

It is a modern young church, but it was built according to the distinguished Coptic Orthodox style that makes it different from Catholic or Anglican churches.

Unfortunately, the celebrations were overshadowed by what happened in Sudan.

Already the Coptic Orthodox Church which has a very active branch in Sudan asked its funerals not to attend mass and stay at home.

Anyhow Happy Easter again.
