Saint Thomas Home-Syrian Catholic Patriarchal Exparchate

 

 

The Saint Thomas Home is owned by the Syrian Catholic Patriarchal Exparchate of Jerusalem and is primarily a guest house for pilgrims.

 

 

Background

 

The Syrian Catholic Church, a uniate breakaway from the monophysite Syrian Orthodox church, has been in communion with Rome since 1663. The Syrian Catholics have their own patriarch (resident in Beirut), and since 1890, a patriarchal vicar in Jerusalem has served as spiritual leader of the small local community there and in Bethlehem, which totals about 350. In July 1985, the community consecrated the new patriarchal church in Jerusalem dedicated to St. Thomas, apostle to the peoples of Syria and India.

 

 

Location

 

Centrally located near to the Damascus Gate, and situated opposite the Ecole Biblique of Dominicans, the hospice is ideally situated for guests seeking to explore the old city, as well as meander through the outdoor markets found just outside the property. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is a fifteen minute walk way.
