Consecration of the church building conducted on 14th February by His Grace H.G. Thomas Mar Thimothios, Metropolitan of Malabar Diocese (Now His Holiness Moron Mar Thomas Mar Didymus I, Catholicose of the East). Thus St. Mary’s Syrian Orthodox Church became an important land mark in the history of our parish and Bahrain.

Public meeting held in connection with the dedication of the church on 13th February attended by H.E The political agent, Ministers of the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Protestant churches in Bahrain and high government officials as distinguished guests. Messages received from H. H.the Patriarch of Antioch, H. H. the Catholicose, His Highness Sheikh Isa Bin Sulman Al Khalifa, the ruler of Bahrain. His Highness’s message was a valuable record in the history of our church showing his tolerance and respect for other religious sections living in this country. This was the first church built for the Asians in any Arab state. Our church became an inspiration and model for other churches to be built in near by countries.
