Mar Gregorios Maha Edavaka, Muscat is completed its 45th year of existence in the soil of the Sultanate of Oman. We thank God Almighty for the immeasurable mercy and grace that the parish received during these long periods. From a small congregation in 1972, we have now grown into the largest community of Christians in the Sultanate of Omann. Members from different regions like Nizwa, Ibra, Sur, Ibri, Rustaq, Bureimi etc all joined this Church for worship. Formation and establishment of two independent churches at Sohar and Ghala is another sign of our growth. Muscat parish providing all care and support with a parental love.
Along with the spiritual needs of the members, we are extending our help and support in the socio-political and economic fields. Our church has contributed substantially to philanthropic activities, health care, social problems, quality education and many other sectors for a large number of people in Oman and India through its various projects and programmes.
