COPTIC CENTRES OUTSIDE OF EGYPT
This is a list of the Coptic Centres (i.e. cultural Centres managed by Coptic
people, or people of Coptic origin) outside of Egypt.
The colleagues are kindly requested to send information
on this subject. The best way to send information is
e-mail; short of that, please send a typescript so good
as to be easily read by a scanner. This will very much
speed the work.
