Welcome to Kuwait City Mar Thoma Parish
The worship in Kuwait started by a small group of members of the Church, went for work in KOC ( Kuwait Oil Company) and at the American Mission Hospital in late 1940s.At the initial stages KOC extended the facility of inviting one priest every year during the Holy week, for special services. The Present Valia Metropolitan ( then Rev Philip Oommen) was the first priest to visit Kuwait, in 1948 under such arrangements.
In 1952, Rev. Philip Oommen (Valiya Metrolpolitan H G Dr.Philipose Mar Chrysostum Mar Thoma Valiya Metropolitan ) conducts the First Holy Communion according to the liturgy of Mar Thoma Church and Rev M.G. Chandy ( Late Dr. Alexander Mar Thoma Metropolitan ) inaugurates the first congregational worship at the American Mission Church.
