Intercession from Baselios Church, from the Heart of North America

We are the only church in the heart of North America dedicated in the name of St. Baselios Bawa.

Since there are many people who have no access to a genuine Syriac Orthodox Church, Baselios Church is providing the opportunity for you to register the names of you and/or your loved ones to be remembered and prayed for by the celebrant priest (or Bishop) during our regularly scheduled services (including the church Day - the feast of St. Basil. Please send email to mail@baselios.org. This service is free. (Register at least 24 hours before the service.)

But there will be more. We will cover issues that are important to families. What are the things that keep our members awake at night? Is that about their children? taking care of old aged parents? Relationship with their spouses? Breakdown of marriage? Health issues? Balancing work, family and spiritual life? Managing stress?

We will use a combination of technology and harnessing the resources of our people within our church to do that. The website has currently over 8,000 articles with more than 80% of them indexed in Google. A weekly Malankara World Journal has published over 90 issues. This has subscribers in all corners of the earth.  To learn more, visit Malankara World website
 

News In Brief

Archdiocesan Gospel Convention and Lenten Retreat - 2018

From March 16-18, 2018, St. Mary's League and St. Paul's Men's Fellowship jointly organized the first ever Archdiocesan -wide Gospel Convention and Lenten Retreat. Since this is the first time we are organizing such an event nationally and due to unpredictability of the weather, we were not sure what to expect. The event was held in the Archdiocese Cathedral. Attendees included a group from Canada!!

WOW! In spite of the bad weather, we had a good turnout on Friday and packed to the brim crowd on Saturday. The program was well organized and the team received kudos from everyone. Next year it will be held in a larger auditorium.

Our church also played an important role in the convention. Dr. Jacob Mathew, VP of Baselios Church, served in the Core Organizing Team of the Convention and also was in charge of Publicity. Jacob is also the Regional 3 Coordinator of the St. Paul's Men's Fellowship, a region that includes Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina and Florida. Theethose thirumeni praised Malankara World Journal during the convention and encouraged everyone to read it.

Baselios Church may be one of the smallest churches in the Archdiocese in terms of membership, but is a giant in terms of the service to the Archdiocese. Reminds me of the bible verse,

But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.
Matthew 2:6; Micah 5:2

Just like Bethlehem, an unimportant town in Judea, was selected for the birth of the son of God, Baselios Church, a small church in the archdiocese, is often called to perform big tasks for the Archdiocese.

Baselios Church at the 29th Archdiocesan Family and Youth Conference

Twenty ninth Archdiocesan Family and Youth Conference, held in Lancaster, Pennsylvania from July 15-18, created history on many counts.

First, it was the first Family Conference ever where a Patriarch attended the event. Our Holy Father HH Ignatius Aphrem II arrived in time to attend the Public Meeting immediately following the  Heritage Procession, more colorful than ever. Patriarch also led the Holy Qurbano on Saturday, July 18 and individually blessed every participant after the service.

Second, it was attended by the largest crowd ever. 640 people signed up. 625 actually attended from 45+ churches, including several churches in Canada for the first time.

For the first time, our church had a full page complement page. Both Dr. Jacob and Dr. Shila Mathew, co-founders of the church, participated in a panel discussion organized by the Division of Pastoral Care Ministry of the Archdiocese at the event dealing with Joint and Nuclear Family and their impact on the Family. They also had written an article in the Souvenir. Dr. Shila Mathew is a member of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Care Ministry.
