SOCMNet is an internet platform of Malankara Jacobite Syriac Christians  (Malankara Jacobite Syrian Christian Church - under the Holy See of the  Patriarch of Antioch and all the East.).

 

According to tradition, Christianity in India was established by St. Thomas,  who arrived in Malankara (Kerala) from Edessa in A.D. 52. The Church in Malankara has had close ties with the Church in the Near East ever since.

 

The ties between the Church in Malankara and the Near East formalized and strengthen by, when under the leadership of the merchant Thomas of Cana and 72 families (around 400 odd persons comprising men, women and children, reached Cragananore (Kodungalloore).  The group consisted of the Bishop Mor Joseph of  Edessa as well as some priests and deacons traveled and migrated to India and met Christians there by AD 345.

 

The church in Malankara is an integral part of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church with the Patriarch of Antioch [His Holiness Moran Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas] as its supreme head. The local head of the church in Malankara is the Catholicose of India [His Beatitude Baselios Thomas I], ordained by and accountable to the Patriarch of Antioch.

 

The web sites in the SOCMNet are not official web sites of the Syriac Orthodox Church in Malankara, even though the Owners, Moderators and Webmasters owe allegiance to the hierarchy of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church.  However, opinions and responses of the Church leadership are posted here.
