Welcome to St. Ephrem's Indian Orthodox Congregation
We are a congregation of Orthodox Christians located in Central Ohio (Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton) under the South-West American Diocese of Malankara Indian Orthodox Church. We are in full communion with all Oriental Orthodox Churches. His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulose II is the Catholicos and Malankara Metropolitan of this Holy Church of God. As a community we are united by a deep desire to live our Orthodox faith and grow to our fullness in Christ.We welcome all who wish to worship and learn with us, in the Orthodox way of Life.
"O Lord and Master of my life, give me not the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust for power and idle talk.
But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity (integrity), humility, patience and love.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see mine own faults and not to judge my brother. For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages.
- St. Ephrem
