Northeast American Diocese

Welcome to the official site of the Northeast American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church!

The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, otherwise known as the Indian Orthodox Church, traces its apostolic roots to St. Thomas, the Disciple of Jesus Christ. St. Thomas preached the Gospel in the southeast Asian subcontinent of India, specifically in a state presently known as Kerala. It is there that St. Thomas established 7 Churches and 1 chapel. This Church grew from hundreds of converts to a present day of 3.5 million faithful. More than 2,500 families of those humble faithful live in the Northeast North American continent.

Canonically formed and established as a Diocese in 1979, the then known American Diocese, grew from Her humble beginning of a handful of congregations to more than 90 parishes and congregations scattered all across North America. In order to better minister to the faithful of this continent, the Holy Church divided the North American Church into two Dioceses, namely - the Northeast American Diocese and the Southwest American Diocese. The Northeast American Diocese has its headquarters in the quiet Long Island suburb of Muttontown, New York.
