"Be enlightened in Christ and Transform people for the Glory of God"
This is going to be marked in history as the first ever Jacobite church in Sacramento, the capital city of California which is the most populous state in United States Of America.
St Basil's Syrian Orthodox Church-Sacramento in its budding stage is formed with a clear mission with a vision. The Church has been formed by a group of families who are followers of Syrian orthodox tradition in India (Malankara). The Church is under the Apostolic Holy see of Patriarch of Antioch and the local head of the Church in Malankara is the Catholicose of India, currently His Beatitude Baselios Thomas I, ordained by and accountable to the Patriarch of Antioch. His Eminence Mor Theethos Yeldho is the patriarchal vicar and Archbishop of the Malankara Archdiocese of North America, directly under the jurisdiction of Patriarch of Antioch.
We gather here to celebrate holy Qurbana according to the ancient tradition of Syrian Orthodox Church.
We are looking forward to expand our mission by transferring the rich orthodox tradition to our young generation through Sunday-schools and Youth associations.
Expecting all your kind support towards spreading the messages of our savior - Jesus Christ.
Yours In Christ,
