  1. why you gave Indian Orthodox church as a seperate church... Indian Orthodox church is a division of and an integral part of Syriac Orthodox Church.. The primate of Indian Orthodox Church(Malankara sabha) is H.H Patriarch of Antioch and all the East.. Our present patriarch is H.H Ignatios Zakka Iwas 1st..

  2. We find Christians of many denominations all over the world turning to Oriental Orthodox Faith ... we need to stop and think what it is about our Faith that draws others and whether we are nurturing and taking care for that precious quality...
