St. Mary and St. John the Baptist Coptic Orthodox Church (SMSJB) has a small, but devoted congregation working to build a beautiful place to worship God in all His glory. We were given the blessing to establish this church by H.H. Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria in 2011. We have made immense progress (pictures available on our Facebook page) since then, and we hope to continue to grow our congregation and connection with the community in the years to come. If you have any questions about our church, please visit our Contact Us page to get in touch with us.
We would like to welcome Father Youhanna and his family to the Valley! Father Youhanna worked directly under H.H. Pope Tawadros II in Egypt and visited the St. Marina Coptic Orthodox Church of Winchester, VA where we had the opportunity to observe his liturgy. After consulting with Father Youhanna and our churches' board members, our churches asked Pope Tawadros II if he would allow Father Youhanna to serve our area, and he said yes! He and his family are now settling into their new home in Virginia and will hold services in our church weekly!
