After passing the lake, pass Arcadia Dr and John Dr on the right and notice four yellow and black directional arrows in a row also on the right. Our driveway is between the third and fourth arrows on the right. The temple is the first building on the right as you enter the property.

Mornings of Great Feasts
Under the prayerful guidance and omophorion of His Beatitude, Jonah, Archbishop of Washington, Metropolitan of All America and Canada, Locum Tenens of the Diocese of the South, St Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church has been growing and bearing witness to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ since 1976. We held our initial services and gatherings in the apartment of Fr John and Brigid Townsend, then in the “upper room” of a local bank. In 1979, on our 5+ acres of wooded land, we began construction of the delightful and warm redwood temple which we have worshipped in since its dedication in 1980 by Archbishop Dmitri.
In the midst of one of the most popular counties in America, Gwinnett County, Russians, Georgians, Romanians, Syrians, Lebanese, Greeks, and of course the American convert, have risen above the daily and mundane cares of this world and seen the beacon of St Mary’s; and then followed it into the truth of Orthodoxy in America. Praise God for all things!
As St Philip said to Nathaniel, “Come and see.”
