Updated July 3, 2020


Dear Christos Members,


The COVID-19 pandemic has created considerable challenges for all of us these past several months. Fortunately, we are beginning to witness the opening of some parts of the U.S., particularly in the Northeast. We expect that members will be able to return to the worship place in the near future. However, clearly, this is an evolving situation, and new restrictions may be implemented in the coming months if there is a dramatic resurgence of coronavirus cases in the geographic region of our Church.


Because of this continued uncertainty, as well as the numerous COVID cases over the past few weeks, I want to provide you with an update. Our primary concern has been and continues to be the health and safety of our Church members. After considering many options, the Executive committee has decided to continue to depend on online worship media until Friday, July 31, 2020. During this period, Christos Parish will remain closed, and members will continue to worship virtually.  A reevaluation of this plan will take place at the end of this month, and we will communicate the decisions made for the coming period. 

Same as the last two-months, Sunday worship continues in online live streaming from the Sanctuary. All other prayer meetings, organization meetings, and activities remain in the zoom conference call. All Sunday services will be in Malayalam led by Rev. Anish Thomas Thomas, except on the 3rd Sunday service. Rev. Thomas K Mathew will lead this service in English. 

We will continue to make decisions very carefully and take strategic steps to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. This includes closely monitoring the situation as it evolves and evaluating the effectiveness of our actions.  Above all, we will make decisions based upon what is best for our members, community, and the future of Christos Families. 

Finally, I want to express my overwhelming gratitude to all of you for your understanding, flexibility, and prayers during this difficult time. The magnitude of this pandemic is unlike anything we have previously encountered.   Thank you for your help, continued support, and dedication to the Christos Mar Thoma Church.  

May God Bless You and keep you all safe.
