Coptic Patriarch Pope Tawadros II heads to Vienna in his second overseas visit since inauguration

Egypt’s Coptic Patriarch Pope Tawadros II is heading to Vienna to inaugurate several Orthodox churches and give sermons to church members residing in the city.

Pope Tawadros II will also attend the first conference for Diaspora churches in Europe.

This is the Pope’s second overseas trip since his inauguration in November 2012.

Earlier in the month, Pope Tawadros II made a historic visit to the Vatican — the first such visit of a Coptic Orthodox Church leader in 40 years.
