      Following a private meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan
      Williams, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, the Coptic Pope, received the
      Primates of the Anglican Communion at the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate in
      Alexandria on Saturday evening, 31 January. The Primates are meeting in
      Alexandria in the latest of their series of regular meetings.

      In thanking Pope Shenouda for his warm welcome and hospitality the
      Archbishop of Canterbury drew attention to the significance of meeting
      together in the city where many of the universal doctrines of the Christian
      faith were formed and where the seeds of the Christian monastic movement had
      been sown in the third century.

      Pope Shenouda welcomed the Primates. Bishops, he said, had a special
      responsibility to guide their people in the path of holiness. Engaging with
      the young was particularly important. The Coptic Church in Cairo alone was
      providing Sunday school education to between 30 and 40,000 children. He also
      gave an account of the resurgence of the Coptic monasteries in Egypt. There
      were more than twenty communities with over 100 monks each.

      Bishop Mouneer Anis, Anglican bishop in Egypt and Primate of the Province of
      Jerusalem and the Middle East thanked Pope Shenouda for his generosity and
      paid tribute to his extraordinary teaching ministry based at the Coptic
      Cathedral in Cairo.
