General Body meeting of St. Thomas Mar Thoma Church of Delaware Valley
We greet you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As you get to browse around our website, We hope you will find the information put up on these pages useful to you. We, as St. Thomas Marthomites domiciled in the Delaware Valley region (bordering the three States of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware) would like to invite you all to our parish for worship services.
St. Thomas Mar Thoma Church of Delaware Valley has been formed as a result of the conviction of the Malayalee Christians living in and around the Delaware Valley. A new church was needed because so many members live in the western suburbs. Eighty-Seven plus families expressed their willingness to join and form a new parish and requested the respected Episcopal Synod for its approval. By the grace of God, and the valuable support of our Diocesan Bishop, Rt.Rev.Dr. Euyakim Mar Coorilos Episcopa, the Episcopal synod that met on September 2005 decided to accept this request.
It has been an incredible journey for members of the St.Thomas Mar Thoma Church of Delaware Valley, in forming and building our Church in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. There has been a lot of energy, enthusiasm, challenges, and creativeness in raising funds, acquiring land, obtaining Township zoning and construction approvals, developing a design, constructing an altar, parsonage and church kitchen within a 3-year time frame from formation. We truly experienced God’s abundance grace and blessings during the implementation of this project.
