I have moved into Singapore and would like to know if we have our
church here in Singapore.
Thanks & rgds
As a follow up of the discussions in SOCM Forum during October / November 2006, the Jacobite members in Singapore started their own Congregation. The first Holy Qurbono was celebrated by H.G. Thomas Mor Themotheos on 06 August 20007 and around 100 families attended it. Regular service starts at Armenian Church on 9th March 2008, Sunday onwards by then Vicar Rev. Fr. Kuriakose Kadavumbhagam . The new church named after St. Mary.
