COMBONI ITINERARIES IN EGYPT
THE COMBONI FAMILY IN THE WORLD
INFORMATION AND HOLY MASSES
It is possible to visit both in Cairo and in Assuan some places which are dear to the Comboni missionaries: urban areas, religious sites and historical monuments. In spite of the transformations which some have undergone, their original beauty has never been lost.
OLD CAIRO. It is possible to visit the “Coptic-Orthodox convent” built on the ruins of the “Maronite convent” which accommodated Comboni for a period of time.
CORDI JESU (Cairo). It is the first sanctuary in Africa dedi- dedicated to the Heart of Jesus.
ASWAN. The few bones of Comboni found after the mahdist revolution were kept in the church of Assuan for 60 years.
