Learn about Coptic Culture
22-23 October 2022
We The Copts

The Coptic people are a small group of Christians from the Middle East originating from Alexandria, Egypt and whose traditions date back to some of the earliest days of Christianity. Although most Copts live in Egypt and contribute to less than a quarter of it’s population, there are approximately one million Copts living throughout the world. Being a minority in Christianity, our hope is to uphold our long-standing traditions while still being integral members of our modern day communities. Our goal is to teach our community about who we are and to celebrate our people, history and faith.

Fun Facts:

  • Coptic Christians are direct descendants of Ancient Egyptians and Coptic was the spoken language for many, many years!!! Unfortunately, the Coptic language is now only spoken during our liturgical services.
  • Our church and traditions are over 1,000 years old and have been passed down many generations.
