Coptic church celebrate the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Coptic churches and monasteries celebrate The Exaltation of the Holy Cross today.

In the Christian liturgical calendar, there are several different Feasts of the Cross, all of which commemorate the cross used in the crucifixion of Jesus. While Good Friday is dedicated to the Passion of Christ and the Crucifixion, these days celebrate the cross itself, as the instrument of salvation.
