Tribute to Dr Helmy Guirguis by Lord David Alton

  • Print

Helmy was a truly wonderful man of great integrity and I count myself fortunate to have known him. 

It was Helmy who first introduced me to the rich story of the Coptic Church and to its contemporary sufferings.

We worked together over many years during which I found him to be an invaluable source of wisdom and practical knowledge.

He was a man of great and enduring faith and the Church has lost a wonderful and true son – while the world has lost a dedicated physician and good man.

Lord David Alton of Liverpool
