Welcome to St. Ignatious Malankara Jacobite Syriac Christian Cathedral



St. Ignatious Malankara Jacobite Syriac Christian Cathedral is under the Malankara Archdiocese of Syrian Orthodox Church in North America. St. Ignatious Church was founded in 1977. Over the years the church saw growth in members and spiritual activities. In October 2012, His Holiness Ignatius Zakka I Iwas, the Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, declared the church as the first Cathedral of Malankara Archdiocese in North America. We welcome you to visit our church, now consisting of over 140 families, and join us in worshiping God Almighty according to the ancient traditions of the Syriac Orthodox Church.


To encourage the youth and young adults to have more participation in the church activities, the English Service Chapel was consecrated on May 6, 2017 by H.E. Theethose Mor Yeldo. The vision of the Chapel is to build an Orthodox community where people find transformation and growth in Jesus Christ through the faith which has been believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for since the Day of Pentecost.
