Through the grace of God and the blessings of both the Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark, H.H. Pope Tawadros II, and the Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Mississauga, Vancouver, and Western Canada, H.G. Bishop Mina, our blessed province of Alberta has been chosen as the location of the first Coptic Monastery in Western Canada.
The Monastery of St. George & St. Paul The Anchorite will bring the authentic monastic life that was established by St. Anthony The Great in Egypt (270 AD) to Western Canada. The monastery will provide a variety of spiritual and social services to the Coptic and Christian communities of Western Canada.
