Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church spokesman said the church is preparing to establish a new monastery for nuns in Australia, in a statement on his official Facebook page.

Pope Tawadros II met on Monday with nuns Mother Katrina and Mother Elizabeth from St. Demiana’s monastery at the papal headquarters in St Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Abbasiya, to discuss the arrangements for establishing the new religious community.

The new monastery is currently under construction in the Laura district of Sydney.

There are two Coptic Orthodox dioceses in Australia with over 50 parishes, as well as three monasteries, two theological colleges and four schools.

The country’s first Coptic Orthodox nunnery, Archangel Michael Monastery in Melbourne, was opened by Pope Tawadros in 2017.
