Liturgical Resource Development


[Please follow us on our Facebook page at for more information and periodic updates on projects!]

The Ministry of Liturgical Resource Development was created by H.G. Alexios Mar Eusebius, Metropolitan of the Diocese of South-West America (Kalpana) in July of 2015 to promote the translation, versification, and publication of vital English liturgical resources.


You can navigate to some of the resources that we now have available by using the menu bar to the left of this page. Please check back periodically as we will continue to add to this catalog as resources are developed.


We currently have two publications in, or coming to circulation:


1) Shehimo - The Shehimo, or the Book of Common Prayer of the Syriac Orthodox Church, contains the daily prayers of the Church. It can be purchased at:


2) Holy Qurbanakramam - The Service Book of the Holy Qurbono features the updated English translations, in a four-column format: with commentary/explanations along with prayers and hymns in English, Malayalam Transliteration, and Malayalam in a side-by-side arrangement.
