About Us

The Malayalam Community originates from the state of Kerala in the south of India, with Malayalam as its first language.

The evolution of the Catholic Church in India as a whole has been strongly influenced by historical forces. The origin of Christianity in Kerala is attributed to the arrival of St. Thomas the Apostle in the region in the year 52 AD. St. Thomas helps us to think seriously about our evangelization mission in the present circumstances where the universal church is stressing new evangelization processes.

Our Core Values:

  • Humility – Humble ourselves before God and Man. Serve all with love, irrespective of race or religion.
  • Charity – Share our material and spiritual gifts with our brothers and sisters in our neighbourhoods and in our community.
  • Compassion – Express love, care, kindness, empathy & sympathy to our brothers and sisters in our neighbourhoods and in our community.
  • Integrity – Commitment to be used as builders of God’s Kingdom.

To be a caring community united in faith, witnessing Christ’s message of love in our lives.

To engage the Catholic Malayalam community in spiritual formations, family services, Malayalam Prayer gathering, and celebrations as well as participating in all church activities jointly with other ministries of the parish.
