I was wondering, why doesn't our Coptic church ordain more archdeacons? It seems the Greeks and Russians have a good number, as well as a greater number of full rank deacons. From what I know, this rank of deacon is very honorable, and is associated with many services related to the church. I know that the California diocese has two or three, but being from the Southern US diocese (Abba Youssef), we don't have any deacons or archdeacons. What's the deal?
