Bible Verse of the Day

I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’

History of our Church

The life of St. Mary’s Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church at Frankston, Melbourne started with a group of Jacobite Syrian Christian faithful who have migrated from Kerala, India.

As an Australian Diaspora community of the Jacobite Syriac Christians, this church is an integral part of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church, which is headed by H.H. Ignatius Aprem II, the Patriarch of the Antioch and all the East.

The St. Mary’s family began its spiritual voyage on 29th December 2009 as a ‘prayer assembly’ of believers who resided at the South-East part of Melbourne city.
