About Our Priest
Father Shenouda's Story
Father Shenouda came to the central coast 3 years ago, in 2017, after our short term priest was summoned to go to another church, Anba Serapion sent Father Shenouda to be our new priest. Father Shenouda is our long term temporary priest, he came from Saint Anthony Monstary in Newberry Springs, CA, where he was a monk there for many many years. Father Shenouda speaks Arabic and English.
Our Clergy, Pope, and Bishop:
Priest of Saint Macarius the Great Church
Important Note from Anba Serapion's visit on 4/11/21:
Now that we have our church, Abouna Shenouda's special mission to help us start a church and build/buy a church on the Central Coast of California, has been completed. Anba Serapion will now move with us to the next step of getting a permanent Abouna, a priest to serve us on the Central Coast . This process will happen in the coming months, as we will miss Abouna greatly, when he leaves.
