Urgent: Help Buy a Church in the Diocese

The Church of St. Pope Kyrillos VI in Westminster, California is one of the newest parishes in our diocese. With God’s grace, it was established in August 2013 immediately after the Holy Synod of the Coptic Orthodox Church canonized Pope Kyrillos VI the Wonderworker as a saint. For this reason, it is one of the first parishes throughout the world named after our wonderful saint who has been quite active there for the last year.

Among the many glorious works of God through the prayers of St. Pope Kyrillos is the recent opening of escrow to purchase a large church complex that would be perfect for this congregation’s present and future needs. The price of the church is $3.5 million, and with God’s grace, $1.4 million has already been raised in a matter of months.

Now, to close escrow and secure this church property for the glory of God and the honor of St. Pope Kyrillos, we need your help. Anyone who is able to make a contribution, no matter how small, is encouraged to do so as soon as possible through the following methods:

By Mail

St Pope Kerollos Church
PO Box 130
Midway City‎, CA‎ 92655

By Direct Deposit to Bank of America Account

Use Account No. 325020234081

By Personal Loan

The church will accept even short-term loans (i.e., 6 mos.) for those who wish to loan money to the church for this property. Please contact Fr. Felimon Mikhail directly at (714) 423-7912.

With your prayers and support, St. Pope Kyrillos VI Church will be established soon and we will all have a place to worship God and ask for our saint’s prayers.
