About Us

St George Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church affiliate with the Archdiocese of Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church, Australia which is an integral part of Universal Syrian Orthodox Church with The Patriarch of Antioch and All the East: H.H. Moran Mor Ignatius Aphrem II, adorning the throne of St Peter, as its supreme head.

Majority of the members of our Church are migrant christians with their roots in Kerala state of India, following the traditions and faith of Malankara Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church in Kerala. The regional head of the Church in India is the Catholicos, ordained by and accountable to the Patriarch of Antioch. The faith, traditions, customs and rituals of Malankara Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church are of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church, although the former use ‘Malayalam’ as the prominent language for lithurgy and hymns.
