St Gregorios Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church
A place of worship in South Chennai was a long cherished dream and prayer of Jacobite Christians staying in and around South Chennai. The inaugural Holy Mass was celebrated on Sunday, 27th November 2011 by the diocesan bishop H.G. Issac Mor Osthatheos. The Kalpana of our shreshta bava H.B. Baselios Thomas I was read during the Service christening the church in the name St. Gregorios, the great saint of Malankara.
It is our long cherished prayer to have Church in our own premises and with this idea it was decided to form a society in the name of “ST. GREGORIOS JACOBITE SYRIAN SOCIETY, CHENNAI”. With the kind approval of Diocesan Bishop, the document for the registration of the society was submitted in the sub-registrar office, Saidapet, Chennai and got registered under TN Societies Registration Act, 1975 in July 2013 with registration No. 207/2013. Currently, our Church is the only institution managed by this Society and the managing committee of the Church is same as that of the Society.Read On
