Welcome to St. Ignatious Malankara Jacobite Syrian Christian Cathedral

The 40th Anniversary Project of St. Ignatious Cathedral, Dallas, TX

The year 2017 has been declared 'the year of thanksgiving' as St. Ignatious Malankara Jacobite Syriac Orthodox Cathedral celebrated its 40th anniversary. The general body of the cathedral proposed to return something meaningful to society. A project to house the paralyzed in Adimali, Ernakulam, Kerala has been approved and officially declared by H.E.Mor Titus Yeldho, the Metropolitan of the Malankara Archdiocese in North America, during the 40th-anniversary celebrations. 

The Bishop of the High-range region of the Malankara Jacobite Church, H.G. Mor Julius Elias Metropolitan, has graciously agreed to take the initiative to build an accessible apartment complex for the paralyzed and bedridden individuals.

This space will serve as an alternate living arrangement for bedridden patients for a long-term stay or short-term rehabilitation. There will be accessible bathrooms, bedrooms, living area, individual beds, avenues for physical rehabilitation, psycho-spiritual and supportive interventions, occupational interventions, support groups, prayers, and Holy Qurbono. The High-range Region Gospel Mission will further maintain and manage the space for this purpose.

The Gospel Mission has identified more than 150 people in the region who are completely paralyzed and bedridden and need an alternate living arrangement. The life circumstances and needs of this population are varied, and most of their families cannot afford their basic minimum requirements. Many of them are in despair and distress as they consider their future uncertain and vague.

A significant intervention by providing a long-term or alternate living arrangement along with supportive interventions will inculcate hope and happiness in their lives. The St. Ignatious family is hoping, praying and working hard along with the Gospel Mission team toward the fulfillment of this project: "The God who brought light into this world also brings light into their lives".

Twelve cents of land have been identified for this purpose, and HE Mor Titus Yeldho Metropolitan blessed the foundation stone in March 2018. The construction is progressing rapidly, and God willing expected to complete in July 2019.
