2013 was a dark year for Egypt’s Christians with multiple attacks on churches, and the months following the ousting of Mohamed Morsi only escalated the persecution against them. Some of the attacks on Christians were fatal and at one point, churches started cancelling services. But fast forward a year and the arrival of president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and things are looking much better for Christians in Egypt, says Greek-Catholic priest Rafik Greiche. Meetings have been held between the president and bishops from the Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant Churches, and the government is working with them to prepare a new law on the construction of churches.
