Welcome to Holy Cross Coptic Orthodox Church. We are a community of Coptic Orthodox Christians in Southeast Michigan. Please join us in worshipping and serving God.
The Cross is the most clear and recognizable symbol of Christianity and Jesus Christ that exists. Our goal in the formation of this faith community is that it will be a place where all those who enter will encounter Christ, and it is through His suffering and His sacrifice on the Cross, and through the power of the Cross that we can truly do so. Learn more of our history and purpose in the following pages of this website.
May all those who enter Holy Cross Coptic Orthodox Church find in it the great power of the Holy Cross of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
