Before Holy Qurbana
We welcome you to the website of St. Gregorios Malankara Orthodox Church in Garland, Texas, located in North Texas, less then 25 minutes east of downtown Dallas.¬†Our church is dedicated in the name of St. Geevarugheese Mar Gregorios of Parumala, the great holy father of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church.¬† The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church was established in 52 AD by the Apostle St. Thomas in Kerala, India and is a member of the Oriental Orthodox Family of churches.¬† Our parish was established in 1983 by a small group of pioneer members and ¬†is a part of the Diocese of Southwest America with His Grace Alexios Mar Eusebius as our Diocesan Metropolitan.¬† We conduct Holy Qurbana each Sunday and observe all festivals of our Lord Jesus Christ (Moronaya Perunnals). ¬†Our parish is also one of the few in the United States that houses the Holy Relics of Parumala Thirumeni. ¬†We have active Sunday School, MGOCSM, OCYM, and MMVS spirtual organizations. ¬† In 2013, under the leadership of our Diocesan Metropolitan, St. Gregorios Orthodox Church inaugurated a church building initiative to accommodate the growth of the Malankara Orthodox Community in the Dallas area. ¬†We prayerfully seek your support in this endeavor. ¬†We welcome you to come and celebrate in the Holy Liturgy and experience the richness of Orthodox worship.¬† May the blessings of the One Triune God and the intercessions of St. Gregorios of Parumala be upon you and your family.
Rev. Fr. C.G. Thomas, Vicar
