On Friday, March 9th, 2018 the Horeb Mar Thoma Church celebrated a special communion service to welcome diocesan bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Isaac Mar Philoxenos. Many of our English language congregation were in attendence as well. The members of Mar Thoma welcomed us very warmly and we witnessed the communion in the traditional Mar Thoma style–which has some similarities to the Orthodox Christian Church. Afterwards, we were treated to chicken, or vegetable, curry and rice. Of course, there was cake. In conclusion, we heartily thank our Mar Thoma brothers and sisters for a wonderful experience.
