Church History

The Coptic Orthodox church of The Virgin Mary and St. Mina in Saskatoon was founded 40 years ago. Coptic families used to renting many places to organize weekly prayer meetings and Divine Liturgies.

As our congregation grew, a plan to buy a church was discussed with the church board and members, everyone was highly enthusiastic to the success of this project. Prayer meetings were established to let the holly spirit lead us in choosing a place that suits the church budget & great efforts were spent to find a place for worship.

Finally, on August 2019, our dream came true and church congregation purchased the Holly Cross Lutherian church - our current location - with the help of God, Jesus Christ and the guidance of the Holly Spirit. And the Coptic Orthodox church of The Virgin Mary and St. Mina in Saskatoon has been established

Our Mission

The church's primary mission is to faithfully shepherd its congregation and nourish them spiritually guided by the bible and the Orthodox traditions. The church also serves its local community and helps new Coptic immigrants feel they are in their home town.
