St. Mina, the Martyr and Wonder-Worker is one of the most well-known Coptic saints in the East and West due to the many miracles attributed to his prayers for us.  He was born of Christian parents who brought him up to be a devout Christian.

Adel Sadek was born in 1969 in Alexandria, Egypt. He is the son of Dr. Wadid Sadek and Mrs. Naglaa Sadek and he has an older sister Dr. Randa Antonius. In 2000, Dr. Adel and Marianne were married at St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church in Seattle, WA. In 2006, they were blessed with the birth of their daughter Maria Raphaella.

The First Coptic family that we know of arrived in Syracuse in 1968. God put in the hearts of those church-loving families the idea of starting a new church in CNY. In 1997, there was a meeting of the church members, with Michael Said presiding, where it was decided to incorporate the church.  Attending the meeting were Michael & Mona Said, Mootaz & Nahed Sorial, Adel & Sheiry Soliman, Zaher & Samia Bahouth, Roushdy Nakhla, Bahia El-Bayadi, and Ayman & Nahed Iskander.  Read more

Coptic means Egyptian.
The name of our land in our Egyptian Language is “KEMIT “meaning the “black soil” since this is the color of the Nile’s sediment that constitutes the fertile delta and valley of the river Nile.
