Description

Our church was founded in 1986 with 9 families using a portable altar. In 1992, the church grew to 34 families and a church building was bought in Hamden. The Thrice-Blessed H.H. Pope Shenouda III Consecrated the altar, also in 1992. The Late Fr. Ghabriel Abdelsayed would come and pray liturgies until his repose in 1993. Visiting priests, as well as appointed priests, served the church until 2000. In 2000, the church grew to 53 families and in the same year The Thrice-Blessed H.H. Pope Shenouda III ordained Fr. Abraham Azmy to be the first consecrated priest of the church. Since 2000 the church grew rapidly and in 2008 The Thrice-Blessed H.H. Pope Shenouda III ordained Fr. Andrew Awad as the second consecrated priest. Fr. Andrew now serves St. Peter & Andrew in Stamford. In 2012, HE Metropolitan Bakhomious, the Locum Tenum Pope ordained Fr. Isaac Salib to serve our church. Then in 2015, HG Bishop David ordained Fr. Michael Hefzallah to serve our growing church in the middle of Connecticut. We pray that Christ may continue to bless our church through the intercessions of Virgin Mary and Archangel Michael
