Welcome to Kalloorkad St.Marys Forane Church


Champakulam Kalloorkad Church is the first one under the church at Niranam which is believed to have been founded by St.Thomas,the Apostle himself. The history of Christian religion in Kerala is as old as Christian faith itself. It is the story of brothers fastened together with an invisible thread of religious faith under the leadership of their spiritual fathers; the story of their progress in the spiritual,financial,agricultural and educational fields. Syrian Christians of Kerala were living amongst a very large number of Hindus. Hence they had to compromise with the then popular life style as well as practices. It was but an adjustment only to retain the honourable status and special privileges granted by the Hindu rulers.

Our Mission

A Great Place For Your Family!
We're not about "having it all together" or even pretending we do. We're just a family trying to grow together toward a God who knows us and can help us put all the pieces of this sometimes bizzare world into perspective. We may not have all the answers but we know someone who does. In fact He not only knows the answers....,
He made up the questions.
