Building a Sacred Community
We are Malankara Orthodox Christians. The Malankara Orthodox Church traces its origins to the evangelical mission of St. Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ who came to India in AD 52.
Our parish is based in the Seattle area with a strength of more than 50 families that grows in faith day by day by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the intercession of the Holy Virgin St.Mary and all the other saints.
We are a member parish of the South-West American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Church. The Supreme Head of the church is the Catholicos of the East and Malankara Metropolitan enthroned on the Apostolic Throne of St. Thomas with headquarters at Devalokam, Kerala (India). The Church, though modern in its vision and outlook, keeps the traditional Oriental Orthodox faith and liturgy.
We welcome all to visit and worship with us.
At St Thomas Orthodox Church, we know that inspiration opens hearts. An open heart is an open mind and an open mind is one that can practice tolerance, experience gratitude and feel the glory of God. It is our belief that God is present in all of us, but His active presence can only be felt through faith in Him. We are dedicated to the service of God and all his people, and our goal is to inspire you through the holiness of our dwelling and our services. We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation.
