St. Demiana Coptic Orthodox Church
Saint Demiana Coptic Orthodox Church in Bakersfield was established in 1986. Prayers and services were initially held in a residence, followed by a rented office. The congregation purchased a parcel of land in 2002 and a church was built in 2004.
Several priests have served in the church, including Hegumen Father Bishoy Ghobreial, Hegumen Father Paul Megally, and Hegumen Father Michael Gabriel until the arrival of Hegumen Father Daniel Azer Sous in 2001.
