Message From Very Rev. Fr. Dr. Varghese Plamthottam Chor Episcopos


Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,


Welcome to the website of St. Baselios Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Church Elmont, New York


It is a blessing to welcome you to our website. As you explore these webpages, you can see the history of our church from the time it was established 18 years ago. We have served the spiritual growth of the Indian Orthodox Community in the Elmont area and witnessed our Lord Jesus Christ through the work as a parish


The continued commitment, goodwill and support of the members of this church are reflected through their active participation in all spiritual and social activities. The Lord has greatly blessed our congregation and has taught us to work together as a family and bring every matter to Him in prayer with our whole heart.


We hope you find information on this website useful and will visit us again. In this website you will find biblical themes, history of church, social activities, charity project, church schedule, community enrichment and counseling process. We also welcome and encourage you to join us for spiritual worship and experience the presence of God.


Thank you for visiting us on this home page. Please feel free to contact us with questions, comments.

             To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge.

             To accept the will of God is the greatest boldness.

             To do the will of God is the greatest accomplishment

             To have the approval of God for the work is the greatest Happiness

Yours in Christ’s Service,

Dr. Varghese Plamthottam Chor Episcopos
