Sisi delegates representatives to congratulate Christian denominations on Christmas

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi delegated a number of presidential representatives on Monday to congratulate Christian denominations which celebrate Christmas on 25 December.

The representatives were sent to deliver messages of congratulation to the Coptic Catholic, Syriac Orthodox, Roman Catholic and the Episcopal Churches.

El-Sisi also sent delegations to the heads of the Maronite, Chaldean and Latin Catholic communities.

While Coptic Orthodox Egyptians, who make up 90 percent of all Christians in the country, celebrate Christmas on 7 January, a minority of Christian Egyptians observe the holiday on 25 December.

The Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church also sent delegates to congratulate other Christian communities on Christmas on Monday.

Egypt’s interior ministry is implementing a high-security plan involving 230,000 police personnel to secure the country’s Christmas celebrations.

The security plans includes churches, public parks, vital state institutions, and touristic sites.
