Welcome to feel the love and Grace of our God Almighty at St. Mary’s Indian Orthodox Church. The Indian Orthodox Church is of the families of and in full communion with Oriental Orthodox Churches. The Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Church traces its Christian heritage as far back as A.D.52 when St. Thomas, the Apostles of Lord Jesus Christ who came to India and established Christianity.People of the Indian province were known as the St.Thomas Syrian Christians because of our liturgy (Holy Eucharist) and sacraments were in Syriac (Aramaic) language, from the early times.  The same language is believed to be spoken by Jesus Christ himself . We use the same (western) Syriac language in our holy sacraments and in prayers  even today.  We are delighted that you are in our midst to share the warmth of the Triune God, and especially the love of our Risen Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God.

San Antonio St. Mary's Church - at a glance.

We one of the parish belong to DSWA/Diocese of South-West America of Indian Orthodox Syrian Church. This Parish was established in 2010 as a small chapel - with a humble begriming. Ever since the inception, we’re truly blessed and showered with abundant Grace of Lord Almighty and the protection of His invisible "hands" throughout our journey thus far.  

June 28, 2010:  First Holy Qurbana was celebrated by Rev. Fr. M.M Zachariah at the St. Mary’s Indian Orthodox Christian Chapel in the San Antonio near Medical Center.

December 9, 2010: Our small congregation was promised to a Chapel, at the meeting held at the aramana with HG Alexios Mar Eusebius Metropolitan then.

December 26, 2010:  Rev Fr. Mathukutty Varghese conducted Holy Qurbana and read approval Kalpana (pastoral letter) from diocesan bishop recognizing our congregations as St. Mary's Indian Orthodox Chapel.  

January 22, 2011: Diocesan Bishop, HG Alexios Mar Eusebios made the maiden visit to our Chapel on  “St. Mary’s feast for the Seeds” and celebrated Holy Qurbana.   

November 19, 2011: Through prayers and guidance of the Holy Spirit, H. G. Alexios Mar Eusebius, then the Diocesan Bishop declared & elevate Chapel as St. Mary's Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church of San Antonio (Order/Kalpana#: DSWA/CH/58/2011) - which is a full-fledged parish under SW Diocese of America.  And, appointed Rev. Fr. Dr. V C Varghese as the new vicar to the parish.

December 28, 2012: St. Mary's Church San Antonio purchased a newly renovated building at 4990 View Drive in San Antonio.  Diocesan Bishop HG Alexios Mar Eusebios himself signed the "Article of Deed" at the closing on behalf of Malankara Metropolitan as per the Church constitution (perhaps this is the first time ever any DSWA Church’s Deed was signed by the bishop himself).

August 15, 2015: Diocesan Bishop HG Alexios Mar Eusebius Metropolitan, on the Feast of Assumption of Theotokos-2015, laid the foundation stone for the new church building.  Currently we are near the phase 1 completion  

May 14, 2019: Church secured a neighboring property for the additional 40+ car parking, and the phase 1 fellowship hall construction was contracted  out while waiting for the City full permit.

Sept 8th 2019: Foundation was poured for our dream church (in phase 1)

November 7th 2019: Full construction Permit from City was granted!
