Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark on Monday 8/10/2018 took part in the 25th anniversary of laying the foundation stone of the south American parish.
The pontiff expressed his pleasure for taking part in the ceremony and praised services offered to the churchgoers, spokesman for the Coptic Orthodox Church Polis Halim said in a statement.
The Pope is currently paying a several- week pastoral visit to the United States.
This is his second visit to the US. The pope's first visit to the US was in 2015.
He then visited the southern part of the US and attended celebrations marking the 20th anniversary of the consecration of the south US diocese.
