The idea to establish our parish was conceived in 1997, to serve the Southern part of Orange County. Fr. Tadros Malaty served for a few months prior to the ordination of Fr. Bishoy Nabil Kamel. A small building was purchased in April 1997.

As the congregation grew, a much larger commercial building was purchased in February 2005 and remodeled. An adjacent large building may soon be purchased, for expansion of services.

St. Marina’s priests and congregation are active in the community at large.
