The first Austrian monk ordained at the Monastery of St. Bishoy in Egypt

Father Abraham was the name chosen for the first Austrian monk who was ordained at the Monastery of St. Bishoy in Wadil Natroun.

The new monk was born in Vienna and studied aeronautical engineering in Munich but preferred to enter the monastic order in Egypt, preferring it to the Coptic monasteries in Europe.
