St. Mary's Indian Orthodox Church of Northern Virginia (St. Mary's NoVA), is based in Ashburn, Virginia.
St. Mary's NoVA conducted its first Holy Liturgy in 2005 in Annandale, VA, and later, a rental facility in Clifton, VA for many years. Purchasing the former Calvary Baptist Church of Ashburn, VA, the parish moved to its current location in January 2013.
This is currently the only Indian Orthodox parish in the state of Virginia. Services are conducted weekly in native Malayalam, Syriac, and English. There are also spiritual organizations for all ages - Sunday School, Youth League, and St. Mary's Women's Group. We also conduct prayer meetings at member homes once per month.
St. Mary's Indian Orthodox Church of Northern Virginia is founded based on the essential Christian principles of Faith, Hope, and Love and established according to the customs, beliefs, and regulations of the Malankara Indian Orthodox Church. The mission of the Church is to extend those principles and beliefs into spiritual and social activities involving its members living in and around Northern Virginia and Washington, DC areas.
