The Mission of the Malankara Orthodox Church in North America
The history of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in North America began in the 1960s with the immigration of our forefathers and the formation of Malayalee communities across the country, particularly in major cities like New York, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, etc. In 1959, the Holy Synod of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church formed a single Diocese for all the parishes outside of Kerala and appointed Metropolitan Alexios Mar Theodosius as the Metropolitan. Responding to the rapid diaspora growth, in the year 1976, new dioceses were formed in Bombay, New Delhi, and Calcutta, and the parishes in America were under the jurisdiction of the Bombay Diocese. The sacrificial leadership and efforts of our pioneer priests and laity across the country led to the formation of the American Diocese in the year 1979, and the Late Lamented Metropolitan Dr.Thomas Mar Makarios was appointed as its first Metropolitan. In 1992, the Late Lamented Metropolitan Mathews Mar Barnabas succeeded Mar Makarios, and became the second Metropolitan of the American Diocese. The Diocese continued to thrive and become a notable presence in the North American continent.
