It is a matter of great pleassure to have an official website for the historically important Malayattoor Church. Hope it will be of much help for the devotees to obtain before hand information obout the church and other relevant matters like feast, facilities, places of importance to visit etc. To have the website launched along with the consecration of the new church increases our happiness again. Along with the parishners, I congratulate all who have worked honestly behind these ventures to make them grand success.
The historical and spiritual importance behind Malayattoor Church and Kurisumudy are worth to be made known to the world and I hope website will be one among the best media to do the same along with the latest developments and informations time to time. The monuments have been the glowing symbol of rich spiritual inheritance kindled by St. Thomas, the apostle of Jesus from AD 52 to 72. There are lots of traditional evidents apart from the glitering inherited faith right from the ancient ages that The apostle visited and as part of his missionary expedition set out from Palestine. He is believed to have spent several nights in deep prayer on the mountain before preaching the gospel to the natives and baptizing them.
Today, lakhs of devotees from all over the world visit here every year during the Lenten season and the Puthu Jnayar feast celebrated on the Sunday falling after Easter. They observe various means of sacrifices like fasting and prayer, carrying of crosses by walking on bare foot etc in order to fulfill their prayerful wishes and obtain spiritual rejuvenation.
