St. Mary Coptic Orthodox church of Peoria Arizona started as a mission to serve the Coptic Orthodox community of the West valley of Phoenix with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Youssef. A great blessing from God was bestowed upon St. Mary's church in June of 2009 with the purchase of our new church. We pray that the Lord continues to bless our church and service.
