Welcome to

St. Macarius the Great Coptic Orthodox Church

“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”  

[1 John 1:5]

Welcome to St. Macarius the Great Coptic Orthodox Church located in the San Luis Obispo Area. We currently hold Saturday Morning Liturgies, at our location in Santa Maria, all other events are sadly cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Please Donate 

We are asking that you donate, because our church has just bought a land that we would like to build a church on, so that we can have a place to call our own. We are asking for a small contribution, just $10, to help us build a church. Your contribution would really help us, and we would appreciate it if you could contribute. If you would like to contribute, please click the "Donate Now" button below. Thank You!  

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, 
and he will repay him for his deed.” 

[Proverbs 19:17]

Update on Buying Land and Building a Church

Hi all, 


After negotiation with the owner we secured an offer of $190K purchase price with one year contingency.  We have one year to get a permit from San Luis Obispo County to build the church.  We are in the process of applying for this permit.  We need your prayers and support.
