The Holy Synod Declares Two New Saints

The Holy Synod of the Coptic Orthodox Church 
Under the auspices of His Holiness Pope Tawadros II

Is proud to declare two new Saints into the Congregation of Saints in our beloved Church on this day of June 20th, 2013. 
They are:

+ His Holiness Pope Kyrillos VI (Departed in 1971) 

+ Archdeacon Habib Girgis (Departed in 1951)

Their biographies will be soon added to the Synaxarium, their names added to the Commemoration of Saints in the Divine Liturgy and Midnight Praises, and soon, churches will be named after them. 

May their blessings be with us all, Amen.
