St. Mary’s Jacobite Syriac Orthodox Church in Perth, Western Australia is a community of Jacobite Christians from the Indian state of Kerala, who belong to the Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church. Our church is a member of the Oriental Orthodox Church family and part of the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch, established by St. Peter. The journey of St. Mary’s family began with a group of Jacobite Syrian Christian faithful migrants from Kerala to Perth. The first Holy Eucharist was celebrated on April 10th, 2022, by Rev. Fr. Robin Thomas at St. Vincent Catholic Church, Parmelia.
Since then, our community has grown stronger in faith and spirituality, shining by the grace of God and the intercession of our patron saint, St. Mary. Our liturgy is primarily conducted in Malayalam and includes English and Syriac.
At St. Mary’s Church, we strive to build a foundation in the community to inspire and empower the next generation.
Our vision for St. Mary’s church is that, with God’s grace, it becomes a catalyst for the spiritual growth of our youth and families, fostering deeper connections with God and with each other. Additionally, we hope to develop our God-given potential to make positive contributions to the growth of Australia.
Holy Mass: Sunday - 11.30am
