St. Mary’s Indian Orthodox Church, based in Lucan, West Dublin, and started in the year 2009, is a fast proliferating parish in Ireland. This parish is affiliated to the diocese of UK-Europe-Africa of the Indian Orthodox Church also known as Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church under the Holy See of HH Baselios Marthoma Paulose II, the Catholicose of the East and Malankara Metropolitan, seated on the apostolic throne of St. Thomas in India. This parish is guided and patronised by the diocesan bishop HG Dr. Mathews Mar Thimotheos metropolitan.
This parish upholds the Orthodox Christian ethos and ethics catering to the spiritual needs of the Indian Orthodox Community living in and around Dublin and works towards the goal of achieving a holistic development for the whole humanity through various cultural, charitable educational and ecumenical activities.
The first Holy Qurbana was celebrated on 9th November 2009 by the first Vicar Rev. Fr. T George and ever since we have been conducting the Holy Service and Sunday school regularly thanks to God. . Rev. Fr. Ninan P Kuriakose had also served as the vicar of the parish for a term of 3 years.
This parish has, at present, a strength of 35 families as active members. Many pioneering leaders of the Indian Christians in Ireland form part of this parish. Currently we meet for worship and fellowship at Lucan Presbyterian Church located in the Lucan Village, County Dublin hardly 20 kilometres away from the Dublin International Airport.
All are welcome to join us to lift up the glorious name of the Lord and to bear witness to Christ in the land of the living.
