About

The Syro Malabar Catholic community in Philadelphia has been flourishing for many decades under the leadership of spiritual directors and religious leaders. The Priests from CMI Congregation served this community as its Mission Directors till 2003. The establishment of St. Thomas Syro-Malabar Catholic Diocese of Chicago on March 13, 2001 gave a new direction to all Syro Malabar Catholic Missions in North America including Philadelphia. Under the leadership of Rev. Fr. Christy the community bought the present facility in January 2005, and transformed it to a Catholic Church. The solemn dedication ceremony of the new Church took place on March 19, 2005 and it was declared as an independent Syro- Malabar Parish in Philadelphia.
