About Us

In December 1974, Fr Victor Rophael OAM, of blessed memory, established Melbourne's second parish in the suburb of Northcote which was given the name, St Mark. In August 1986, a parcel of land was purchased on Gilbert Rd, Preston to construct the first built Coptic Church in Melbourne which was completed in July 1990. His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, of blessed memory, together with six visiting Bishops consecrated the newly built church on Sunday 24 February 1991.
