St. George Universal Syrian Orthodox Church, Kuwait was established with the blessings of His Holiness Moran Mor Ignatius Yacoub III, the patriarch of Antioch & all the east under the auspices of H.G (late lamented) Dr Paulose Mor Athanasus (Kadavil). Currently the church is having over 500 families with around 2000 members.

As part of the official declaration of the blessed 'Kalpana', the church is organizing a Holy tri-mass with H B Baselious Thomas I Catholicose as the Chief celebrant assisted by H G Mathews Mor Thedosius Metropolitan, the Patriarcal Vicar for Kuwait Parishes and H G Mathews Mor Aprem Metropolitan at NECK at 6 AM in the morning and a Public Meeting at 7 PM at the NECK. The public meeting will be attended by well known dignitaries and religious leaders.
