The Coptic Catholic Church is an Alexandrian Rite sui juris particular Church in full communion with the Pope of Rome rather than the Pope of Alexandria. The Church numbers about 162,000 (as of 2007) [1][2]. Historically, Coptic Catholics represent a schism from the Coptic Orthodox Church, leaving that church in order to come into full communion with Rome. The current Coptic Catholic Patriarch of Alexandria is Archbishop Antonios Naguib, who replaced Stephanos II in 2005.
