Welcome to St. Thomas Malankara Catholic Church

The Malankara congregation, which started with fifty members gradually, grew and its activities began to spread to other parts of the city. Sub stations were established at Tiruvottiyur on 27th April 1977 and Perambur on 2nd April 1978. The thatched shed continued to be the Chapel for five long years. On Sundays services were conducted and on other day's classes were conducted for the school children in the shed. On Thursday the 27th April 1978 at 6.00 PM the foundation stone for the Church was laid by His Grace Dr. Arulappa then Arch Bishop of Madras in the presence of His Grace Benedict Mar Gregorios Arch Bishop of Trivandrum Malankara Catholic Church. Through very hard work and a lot of sacrifices the construction of the church was completed in an year. Almost all the parishioners donated their one-month salary for the construction of the church. On 8th May 1979 in the presence of Mar Phelexinos, Msgr. C.T. Kuruvilla and a number of priests and nuns, the Church was blessed by His Grace Benedict Mar Gregorios. Chennai Arch Bishop His Grace Dr. Arulappa offered Holy Mass in the church the next Sunday, since he could not participate in the blessing ceremony.
