Departed Saints and Doctors of Church
Morth Mariam Yeldos Aloho
Mary is familiar name for Bible readers. 7 different women bear the name, Mary in the New Testament. Multiplicity of names, absence of clear identification to discern relationship between each of them and translation errors have contributed lot of confusion and gave room for many erroneous interpretations concerning blessed Mary, the mother of God.

Saint Yeldho Mar Baselios
Patron Saint of Baselios Church

Saint Gregorios of Parumala

St. Basil the Great

St. Gregory of Nazianzus

St. Ephrem, Harp of the Holy Spirit
Considered by many to be the greatest poet and theologian of the Syriac Orthodox Church, St. Ephrem or Aprem holds a special place in the traditions of both Oriental and Eastern Orthodox Churches. His other names include Prophet of the Syrians, Orator of the Syrians, Great Malpan, and Aprem the Great.

Other Notables from Church History
Deaconess: Phoebe
You may not remember Phoebe. She is a woman of the Bible who is remembered in but a few sentences in the book of Romans. It is thought that Phoebe delivered Paul’s letter to the church of Rome.
