St. Demiana Coptic Orthodox Church
Saint Demiana Coptic Orthodox Church in San Diego was founded in 1991 as an increasing number of Copts moved southward from Orange County. Initially, the parish was shepherded by Hegumen Father Felimon Mikhail and other parish priests until the arrival of Father Mina Youssef Wahba on August 4, 1995.
On April 18, 2010, Their Graces Bishop Serapion, Bishop Sarabamoun, Bishop Tadros, and Bishop Youssef ordained Father Moses Samaan as a presbyter to serve the church, as well.
The parish’s services are primarily in the English language, as the parish serves many visiting students at nearby universities.
