On August 19, 2023, Metropolitan Hilarion of Budapest and Hungary met in Hungary with the Primate of the Coptic Church, Tawadros II, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark in All Africa and the Middle East, who is on an official visit to Hungary.

During their talk, Matriarch Tawadros told Metropolitan Hilarion about the present situation of the Coptic Church in Egypt and West Europe, the life of the Coptic community in Hungary and the exchange of monastic delegations between the Russian and the Coptic Churches.

The sides discussed other issues of mutual concern.

In memory of the meeting, which was held in a warm and cordial atmosphere, Patriarch Tawadros II resented Metropolitan Hilarion with an icon of the Mother of God painted by nuns of the Coptic Convent of St. Demiana. In his turn, Metropolitan Hilarion presented the Primate of the Coptic Church with his book “The Sermon on the Mount” in English version.
