Dar Mar Polus for Ecclesiastical Services ( St. Paul ’s House for Ecclesiastical Services)


Following difficulties facing the summer courses held for catechism, and due to the large number of students and narrow space, there emerged the idea of establishing a modern centre that provides all the necessary requirements for serving catechism in Qaraqush and developing other religious and ecclesiastical activities.

The foundation stone of the house was laid down by the late Bishop Korls Mar Emmanuel Bani (Trinity Mercy Upon Him) in16/11/1995 who had knocked the doors of many ecclesiastical and charity institutions to fund the project. 

Following the laying down of the architectural designs for the building, work continued to complete the building for more than four years thanks to the efforts of Fr. Sharbel Isso and those who supervised the implementation of the project. 

Recently, St. Paul ’s house has been able to further carry out its activities and projects through the generous support made by Mr. Sakis Aghajan.  

The house was inaugurated in 29/06/2000 on the occasion of the feast of Apostles Peter and Paul, by the pastor of the parish Bishop Mar Bacelius Jarjgis Qas Mousa.

The building has three floors with a chapel, a big show hall like a two-tier amphitheatre and a capacity of 600 persons. It has 15 classrooms, 5 halls, a library, a computer lab, 5 administration rooms, and 4 guest rooms in addition to many yards. 

To receive, activate, and coordinate ecclesiastical services in spiritual , cultural, social and artistic fields is the objective sought by the House as a radiant centre of cultural and civilization of our town and parish.
