St. Maurice & St. Verena Coptic Orthodox Church

Current Announcements




Love is probably the greatest marker of Christianity. Not only has Scriptures revealed to us that God is love, but also, we are called to love Him with our heart, soul, mind and strength and our neighbour as ourselves. Love is not only an emotion but also an action verb whereby we express God’s grace and mercy to one another. As we live in a diverse and multicultural society, we aspire to integrate every member of the community in the one body of Christ. Every person is treated with integrity and respect. This diverse body of believers stands and supports each other not only during bounty but more importantly during hardships. The mission of the Church is not only limited to the members of our community, but we are called to outreach and share the Good News with our neighbours and friends. Through various means to support the marginalized, we aspire to bring healing into our world.
