I would think that if it were listed in the Coptic Orthodox Southern Diocese's website, it would be.

Thanks. I would like to visit and OO Church and just wanted to be sure I was in the right place. Will the liturgy be in English or in another language?

I wouldn't know.  It will probably depend on whether the congregation is mostly recent immigrants, or families that have been here a while.  I would e-mail the contact person and ask.

This church is completely canonical under the jurisdiction of the Southern U.S. Diocese of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

Papist, I found another OO congregation in Albuquerque of the Malankara Catholicosate of the Syriac Orthodox Church:

[EDIT]: And an Armenian church of the Etchmiadzin Catholicosate:

I stopped posting here in August 2011 because of stark disagreement with the policies of the administration and moderating team of the forums. If you desire, feel free to PM me, message me on Facebook (link in profile), or email me: cddombrowski@gmail.com
