“We take this blessed occasion to address our thanks to the Catholic Church for what it has done in the field of culture”, said Tawadros II, “No one can deny the generous commitment of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (followers of the Founder of the Congregation of the Brothers of the Christian Schools) through their contribution to the educational revival in Egypt.”
