About Saint Basil


Saint Basil American Coptic Orthodox Church is a Christian parish of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Los Angeles, Southern California, and Hawaii. Located in San Diego, Saint Basil aims to bring the two-thousand year old faith of the Orthodox Church of Alexandria to English Speakers. All of our services are in English. We are a family-oriented, child friendly parish. We welcome all people of all backgrounds to "taste and see that the Lord is good."

Within our diocese, Saint Basil is among a handful of parishes that has the particular mission of spreading the beautiful Gospel message and tradition of the Church of Alexandria to non-Orthodox Christian peoples of all backgrounds who are thirsting and hungering for the Truth (Mt. 5:6).

Saint Basil is located in the Sorrento Valley area of San Diego.
