The Coptic Orthodox Church is one of the oldest churches in the world, founded in Egypt in the first century by Saint Mark the Apostle and writer of the second Gospel of the New Testament. A conservative church, it has carefully preserved the Orthodox Christian faith in its earliest form. It is a faith that has been passed down through generations, always remaining true to the apostolic doctrines and patterns of worship. The church’s spiritual approach emphasizes holiness, divine mysteries and fellowship, rooted firmly in the canons of the holy scriptures, the apostolic and orthodox creeds, the teachings of the church fathers and the first three ecumenical councils.
Our community is raising money for St.Mary & St.Paul's Coptic Orthodox Church (SMSP) in Calgary Alberta. Established in 2013, it's ever growing congregation has been looking for a place to call home. By the blessings and hospitality of many different churches in Calgary, SMSP has been able to provide service to hundreds of people. SMSP provides services such as weekly prayers, outreach to those in need and the poor, visitation to the sick and spiritual enrichment and guidance.
With God's grace and your contributions, SMSP wants to provide more community services to help the those in need, and establish a place for everyone to feel welcomed. Your contribution, no matter how small, will make an impact in revitalizing the church, the community, and Calgary. Please help us by praying and sharing this cause with family and friends who would like to contribute to a good cause and pray. By the Grace of God and His holy angels and archangels, and all of His saints, we thank you for your generosity.
