St Thomas Syro Malabar Forane Catholic Church, Philadelphia, established in 2005 has just crossed the decennial mark!
With purposeful strides we carry on “In Love and unity for the greater glory of God."
We welcome you heartily to have a look at our website and acquaint yourselves with our parish, our activities and our Holy Qurbana, adoration and CCD schedules. In our parish we are one family and that we believe is our strength and motivation. Spreading the loving radiance of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ, through the trail blazed by our father in faith, Apostle Thomas, we journey forth in abiding faith, hope and love.
God Bless You!

Very Rev. Fr. Johnykutty George Puleessery


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.

Please visit the History page to learn more about our church, its establishment, development and current activities.
