Cork Holy Trinity Indian Orthodox Church

Republic of Ireland, Ireland

Holy Trinity Indian Orthodox Church (IOC) was founded as a Parish in 2008. The commencement of the Congregation took place in 2007. This parish had its humble beginnings as a prayer group under the spiritual leadership of Rev. Fr. Koshy Vaidyan and later became a Congregation celebrating services at St Michaels Church Blackrock. Rev. Fr. Ninan Kuriakose was later appointed as vicar by Metropolitan HG Dr. Mathews Mar Thimothios and took office in July 2009. Rev. Fr. Eldho Varghese took charge as the Vicar on December 15, 2009. Under his spiritual leadership the Congregation gathering was extended to twice a month – once for Holy Qurbana and another for prayer meeting. During this time the foundations for various spiritual organisations like the Sunday School, Martha Mariyam Samajam and Prayer groups were established. The church grew spiritually and in numbers under the guidance of Rev. Fr. Eldho Varghese for 8 years. Rev. Fr Zachariah George [Jessen] was appointed as vicar in August 2017 for both Cork and Waterford congregations. In May 2019, 10th year anniversary of Holy Trinity Indian Orthodox Church was celebrated on the occasion of St. George feast (the Patron Saint), which was graced by Metropolitan H.G Dr. Yuhanon Mar Meletius.

The parish continues to grow steadily. The Holy Trinity IOC is a fully registered charitable organization with regular services on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays every month. In addition, all festival services, special occasions, events as per the Orthodox Calendar are also being conducted.
