Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II arrived in Australia on Wednesday for his first-ever visit to the country, where he will lay the foundation stone for a new church building, state-news agency MENA reported.

In Australia, Tawadros will lay the stones for the Diocese of Sydney, which will include three attached buildings with a new church, a Coptic theological college and administration offices.

He will also give a number of masses and meet with Coptic community members.
