St. Paul Theological Seminary

The Canadian Coptic Centre

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Background Information:
Few years ago, discussions with His Holiness Late Pope Shenouda III were initiated regarding inaugurating a Coptic Seminary in Canada. His Holiness encouraged and supported the initial idea. During the 2006 North American Annual Coptic Clergy Seminar in Boston, MA USA, the subject was addressed with his Holiness once again and received His Holiness' blessings and support.
The directive from His Holiness was to debut the Seminary's first years as a theological enrichment program that will offer approved courses. His Holiness' approval was based on our usage of approved and well-known teachers and courses adapted from other accredited seminaries which is how SPTS seminary proceeded. The first fall semester started in October 2006.
The Program continues under the guidance of H.G. Bishop Mina - Bishop of the Diocese of Mississauga, Vancouver and Western Canada - and with the blessings and encouragement of H.H. Pope Tawadros II.
