St. Mary’s Cathedral Choir

Sing unto Jehovah,O ye righteous, for His praise is comely for the upright. Confess ye to Jehovah on the harp, sing unto Him with the psaltery, an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto Him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise; for the Word of Jehovah is right, and all His work is in the truth. (Ps. 33:1-4).

St. Mary’s Indian Orthodox Cathedral’s choir known as St.Mary’s Cathedral Choir stands proudly as one of the most famous and oldest choirs in Bahrain and was officially started on September 2003.

The mission of St. Mary’s Cathedral choir is to glorify Jesus Christ by allowing Him to use the choir as a tool to lead the congregation in singing.

The choir is an ensemble of about 50 members above the age of 10, who represent a wide array of talents and disciplines. Each choir member is uniquely gifted by God to do the work of music ministry.

St. Mary’s choir is under the presidential of the Cathedral vicar Fr. Varghese Yohannanwho has always been the milestone for all its success because of his sincere support and guidance. Asst. vicar Fr. M B George is also serving as vice president.


Leadership is the challenge to be something more than average. This is well suited to Mr. Santhosh Thankachan who serves as the Choir Master.


The milestone
