Our Church

Mission Statement

To promote a biblical faith, based on the early teachings of the Church, which shapes both the Coptic Orthodox Church and the society in which we live for the sake of Christ.

St. Mary & St. Anthony Church has been in Queens since 1973, and exists to promote a biblical faith, based on the early teachings of the Church, which shapes both the Coptic Orthodox Church and the society in which we live for the sake of Christ. We invite you to join us in working for a Church based on the Truth and in finding a community in which you may become united with other Christians through personal spiritual growth, as well as by “carrying each other’s burdens, which is the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2).

Whether you’re a member, looking for a church home in the Queens neighborhood, or just surfing, we welcome you and hope you’ll take the time to learn more about us, invite you to explore this site and hope you’ll come join us.
