More about us

St. Thomas Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church

(Jacobite) is a vibrant parish growing along with the dynamic city of Austin. We have the privilege of being the only Jacobite parish in central Texas. We worship in an exceptional sanctuary at a convenient location every Sunday morning. Our Sunday school, St. Mary’s Womens’ League, St. Paul’s Mens’ Fellowship, and other meetings take place here as well. Our members are dedicated, welcoming, and eager to share the love of Jesus Christ. Let us know if you plan to move to Austin from another parish or from abroad and we’ll be happy to assist.

You're probably wondering: what is the Austin Orthodox Church?

Well, it’s a real church. We promise. It’s also a place you can go if you’re an Orthodox Christian, or if you want to learn more about the Orthodox Christian faith. We welcome anyone who wants to join us for service on Sunday mornings at 9 AM.

St Thomas Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church, Austin, is a place for people to come together and grow spiritually—whether you’re just learning about Christianity or have been practicing it for years. Our mission is to spread the message of Jesus Christ: that all people are equal in God’s eyes, regardless of race or gender; we should love one another as He loves us; and we should strive daily toward holiness by serving those around us with humility and compassion. We strive to build up our community through charity work and outreach programs for those who need help most: children in poverty, refugees fleeing persecution abroad, victims of natural disasters here at home (or anywhere!)… the list goes on! Join us every Sunday morning at 9 am for worship service followed by fellowship hour afterwards so we can get to know each other better –we hope you’ll feel right at home!
