About the Diocese

Welcome to the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of North & South Carolina and Kentucky.
Through God’s grace, we were established in June 2016 under the guidance of His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, the 117th Coptic Orthodox patriarch and successor of St. Mark. As the newest diocese in North America, we are comprised of 8 priests serving 12 churches in
North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky.
In June 2016, His Holiness appointed His Grace Bishop Peter to oversee the Diocese.
