We are honored to have you with us today, whether you are visiting us for the first time or have chosen to call St. Thomas Syro-Malabar Church as your parish.

St. Thomas the Apostle landed in South western India at the ancient and extinct port of Muziris (near Kodungallur in Kerala) in 52 AD. After preaching and establishing Christian communities in different parts of India, he suffered martyrdom at Mylapur (near Chennai, in Tamil Nadu) in 72 AD.
St. Thomas Christians (Marthoma Nazranis) trace their origins to the evangelical mission of Thomas Apostle. The Syro-Malabar church is an East Syrian Rite, a Major Archiepiscopal church in full communion with the Catholic church.
