WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH

Welcome to the St. Thomas Orthodox Syrian Church Ottawa. We are an Indian Orthodox Christian Community from Kerala belonging to the Malankara Orthodox Church.

The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, otherwise known as the Indian Orthodox Church, traces its apostolic roots to St. Thomas, the Disciple of Jesus Christ. St. Thomas preached the Gospel in the southeast Asian subcontinent of India, specifically in a state presently known as Kerala. It is there that St. Thomas established 7 Churches and 1 chapel. This Church grew from hundreds of converts to a present day of 3.5 million faithful. More than 2,500 families of those humble faithful live in the Northeast North American continent.

Prayer Request Form :

All prayer requested submitted before 8 AM on Saturday will be remembered on Sunday Service. All request received after that will be remembered the week after.
