Marking 2nd Global Coptic Day
The Coptic diocese of SUS is this year celebrating the 2nd Global Coptic Day on 1 June by holding a video contest themed “My Coptic hero”. The contest is open to all persons, individually or in groups, everywhere in the world, and involves creating a one- or two-minute video on a favourite Coptic hero.
Last year, the day 1 June, the Feast of the Entry of the Holy Family into Egypt, was chosen by the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Southern United States to mark an annual Global Coptic Day, and the icon of the Holy Family in Egypt was picked to symbolise the event.
