Saint Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral
Saint Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral is a Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt. It is the historical seat of the Pope of Alexandria, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church
The cathedral is said to stand on the site of the church founded by St. Mark the Evangelist in 42 AD
St. Mark the Evangelist (author of the second Gospel) has been connected with the city of Alexandria since earliest Christian tradition. Coptic Christians believe he arrived in Alexandria around AD 42 and stayed for about seven years
During this time, St. Mark converted many to Christianity and performed many miracles. He is considered the founder of the church in Alexandria and the first Bishop of Alexandria. According to tradition, St. Mark was arrested during a festival of Serapis in AD 68 and martyred by being dragged through the streets. He was buried under the church he had founded
Every year, on the 30th day of the month of Paopi, the Coptic Orthodox Church celebrates the commemoration of the consecration of the church of St. Mark, and the appearance of the head of the saint in the city of Alexandria. This takes place inside St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Alexandria, where the saint’s head is preserved
The present St. Mark’s Coptic Cathedral is of recent date, but is said to stand on the site of church founded by St. Mark himself
Then head to ‘Martyr Mina Church’
In 1946, the foundation stone of the great Martyr Marmina Church in Fleming was celebrated. The Assembly has designated a metal medal for the occasion
Immediately thereafter, the construction of the church began with determination until the completion of the construction of this church. It was beautiful in both its architectural design inspired by the archaeological church in the Mariout region, or in its authentic Coptic inscriptions, which were all unique architectural masterpiece in style and beauty
After about two years and in the middle of 1948. The building was brilliant. The church was fascinating. The church combines the fragrant history of history represented by the four archaeological pillars around its blessed altar
