A few Macedonian Americans who began talking about starting a Macedonian Orthodox Church to serve the growing community of Dallas and state of Texas in 2019. Idea was to help promote Orthodox Christianity and rich Macedonian culture, to preserve it from assimilation for our children and grandchildren in Texas and United States.

Like many churches before us that started small, we are taking small steps, and are starting with small local gatherings providing the people with opportunity to come together and share life stories and experiences. Additionally, these gatherings are preserving the sense of strong Macedonian community and are typically taking place at the times of Macedonian Orthodox Religious and National Holidays.

One of purposes of these gatherings is to promote the Macedonian Orthodox Religion and begin fundraising for purpose of hiring a priest and acquire a ‘brick-and-mortar’ place for a church, thus giving the people a traditional place of worship.

Our church was established legally with IRS in June 2020, with EIN 85-1535330.

The purpose of our church "Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary" in Dallas, Texas is to promote the Macedonian Orthodox religion and culture. As a new organization, and first in this region, lacking our own space, we rent rooms for major religious holidays, where we hold divine liturgies.

We plan to invest all current and future financial resources in securing a church place or building, where our Macedonian commune would gather and hold holy divine liturgies.

This will be a space for all church members and guests, and with your generous support, we can make it a reality.

With your support, we can rent a space that we will all use together for a longer period or buy a smaller building that can be adapted into a church. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 Would you consider getting involved in realizing our plans?

Your contributions can help our Church “Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary” in Dallas, Texas reach our minimum goal of $250,000.

On behalf of our church community "Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary" in Dallas, Texas, we would like to thank you for your support. Your contribution will help us to rent a space that we will all use together for a longer period, or to buy a smaller building that can be adapted into a church.
