About Our Church

History of our Parish

​St. Basil’s Jacobite Syriac Orthodox Church is a dream-come-true for a few families living in the Sacramento area to worship and celebrate the Holy Qurbana in the ancient Syrian Orthodox tradition. The Church was found in 2015 by 7 families and since then we have grown. St. Basil’s Church is under the Malankara Archdiocese of the Syrian Orthodox Church in North America and under the Apostolic Holy See of Patriarch of Antioch and All the East. The Church services are in Malayalam-Syriac-English languages.

We started our Church in 2015 at a rented facility near downtown Sacramento. As our church grew, we rented different facilities.

On 2019 August, we were blessed with our very own church facility in Sacramento. Our new Church was consecrated by our Archibshop His Eminence Mor Titus Yeldho on October 2019, on the Feast day of St. Baselios Yeldo, our patron saint.
