St. Gregory American Coptic Orthodox Church is an Orthodox Christian parish within the Diocese of Los Angeles, Southern California, and Hawaii serving Orange County and surrounding regions with an emphasis on community, service, and education.
The mission of this family-oriented parish is to serve English-speaking Copts and converts to Coptic Orthodox Christianity by offering services primarily in English while preserving the beauty of Coptic hymnody. By God’s Hand, we strive for an organized and thriving church that will nurture a sense of fellowship within its congregation and focus on raising its youth with diligence so that future generations may understand and fully appreciate the beauty of the Holy Mysteries and enjoy an intimate relationship with God. Our commitment is:
To be Christ centered – in every action, service, activity, and event
To actively live our faith within the church and within the community
To be committed to creating an environment for spiritual growth in prayer, the Holy Scripture, and the Orthodox faith
To foster love, acceptance, support for all individuals through service to one another and the community
