Bible Verse of the Day

Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

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.

Message from Vicar

Beloved in Christ Jesus,

The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people! We as a community aim to inspire and empower our next generation to become better humans to positively contribute to the growth of Australia, our home away from home. We will soon have a place to gather, celebrate festivals, run various language classes and empowerment programs for women and youth. The neighbourhood will have a venue for local and multicultural celebrations.

We feel deeply thankful and indebted to The Victorian Labour Government, Minister for Multicultural Affairs, State member for Cranbourne and the administrators of the MCIF. The MCIF will help us build what we are looking at as the home for diversity and inclusion in the Cranbourne local area. MCIF will make our dream possible. We would like to acknowledge and appreciate The Victorian Government for supporting the Multicultural Community Projects.
