St. Mary's Malankara Church
St.Mary’s Malankara Catholic Church, an oasis for our community here, was consecrated at IDCC complex in Mesaimer in April 2009 by His Beatitude Baselios Cleemis Catholicos, H.E Paul Hinder, H.E Bsp Joshua Mar Ignatios and H.G Bsp Abraham Mar Yulios. During the initial stage of the Church construction, Fr.Mathai Iranathara laid a firm financial support structure by his dedicated hard work. Later Fr. Mathew Punakulathil mobilised further resources relevant for the construction of the church and accomplished the task. We appreciate the sacrifice and efforts made by these two vicars during the church construction time and they will be remembered by the community for ever. Fr. Cherian Manappurathu our.previous Vicar (2011 to 2014) is one of the most spiritual leaders who served our Doha Community. He made a noticeable change for all our pious organizations, especially the Prayer Meetings. He contributed a lot for increasing the relations with all other communities and the Main Churches. Today, St.Mary’s Malankara Catholic Church Doha is a fully fledged Church with a membership of about 150 families and equal number of bachelors. All activities and Eucharistic celebrations of pious organizations of the Church like, Catechism, Parish prayer meeting units, MCA, MCYM, Mathtrusamaajam, and also Nurses Prayer Meetings are held on a regular basis. The community is moving ahead with more expectations under the vibrant and dedicated leadership of new vicar Rev. Fr. Varghese Kuthanethu, who has taken charge as our new vicar from September 2014.
