Dearly beloved in our Lord Jesus Christ,
It is a blessing, more than an accomplishment, to welcome you to this website of our St. Peter's Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church, Northlake Illinois. As you tour through these pages, you can see from our history that this church was established in 1978 to serve the spiritual growth of the Malankara Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Community in the Chicago Area and to witness 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 of this parish. This church, from its humble beginning as a prayer group to the present day, never wandered away from our tradition of rich Christian spirit, religious affiliation and brotherly concern for others.
I believe, this website, with many of its useful links, will give you enough information to understand not only about our church but also about Jacobite Syrian Orthodox faith.
Thank you for visiting us on this home page. We also invite you to our church for the traditional Jacobite Syrian Orthodox services. Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments, and suggestions via this link.
May God bless you all,
Very. Rev. Thelappillil Sakariya Cor-episcopa
Vicar & President
