Welcome to St. Gregorios Orthodox Church

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.


With Blessings,

Rev. Fr. C.G. Thomas, Vicar
