St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church is served by Hegoman Fr. Bishoy George and Fr. Polycarpus Shoukry. This is the first of four Houston area Coptic Orthodox churches and a member of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States under the auspices of H.G. Bishop Youssef. Additionally it was the first church built as a dedicated Coptic Orthodox Church in the United States when it was completed in 1977. Over the last 40 years, the congregation of the church has continued to grow, and currently numbers over 300 families. To better serve the congregation, a large scale expansion began in 2008 and on November 1, 2009 the first liturgy was conducted in the new church building.
