Families Woven with Faith

11 - 13 Oct 2024 Toronto, Canada
The inaugural Canadian Mar Thoma Family Conference, the first of its kind in Canada.

Welcome to the heart of Canadian Mar Thoma Worship

Our journey began humbly in 1972, as a small group gathered for worship at the University of Toronto. Since then, our congregation has flourished, expanding to 1000+ members and a state-of-the-art church building which is the second-largest Mar Thoma church in the Diocese of North America.

We were proud to host the very first Diocesan Family Conference in 1982, and the 15th and 25th Family Conferences in 1997 and 2007, respectively. We are now delighted to host the first ever Canada-regional Family Conference!

Come and join us in Toronto!

Welcome from Our Thirumeni!

The Episcopa Diocesan Bishop of the Diocese of North America, Rt. Rev. Dr. Abraham Mar Paulos, welcomes you to the first Canadian Mar Thoma Family Conference in Toronto!

Your Hosts

Travelling to Toronto

The Canadian Mar Thoma Church, Toronto is a thriving community within the larger Mar Thoma Church Diaspora. The growth of Mar Thoma Communities in Canada dates back to the 1970’s. The resultant enthusiasm of small worshipping communities inspired our late Metropolitan The Most Reverend Dr. Juhanon Mar Thoma to permit the commencement of Holy Communion in 1972 at the Trinity College Chapel of the University of Toronto under the leadership of the late Reverend Abraham Lincoln.
