St. Gregorios Feast at Jacksonville FL. Orthodox Church


St. Gregorios Orthodox Syrian Church, Jacksonville, Florida is a small parish of just 13 families. But they were able to purchase a property and remodel the building there to become their worship place. They have made it really beautiful. Rev. Fr. Cyril Davy from Thrissur is the vicar. He invited me for their feast of St. Gregorios and I was deeply impressed by the kind of fellowship the parishioners have among them. A couple of former members of St. Mary’s Cathedral, Philadelphia, whom I knew for several years are currently the members of this Church. That was a pleasant reunion too. Rev. Fr. Alexander Kurian (Director, Strategic Planning, State Department, US government), Rev. Fr. Dr. Jacob Mathew (vicar St. Paul Orthodox Church, Orlando and Visiting Lecturer University of Central Florida), Ref. Fr. Joseph Kalppurayil (Vicar Atlanta Orthodox Church) were also present. The Holy Qurbana was conducted as con-celebration and Rev. Frs. Alexander Kurian and Jacob Mathew con-celebrated with me. Photo courtesy George Cherian (Saji)
