A faith that dared to go and die with the Lord (John 11: 16)
A faith that experienced the risen Christ at the centre of life (John 20: 28)
… that is the legacy St.Thomas, the Apostle of India and our father in faith bequeathed to us. We, the St. Thomas Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, Bristol try to live, share, and celebrate the rich patrimony of our culture and faith in the challenging circumstances of present day England. Being closely related and actively involved in the life of the local parishes, we are committed to the noble task of treasuring the unique faith and imparting it to our new generation.
“We pledge to grow in true Catholic faith, cherish and conserve traditional values handed over to us by our parents through generations. We will continue to impart Christian values to our future generations whilst assimilating and enriching ourselves with the goodness of Western culture. We believe in the true essence of community spirit, celebrate God’s presence in each one of us, live in harmony and peace and help the needy whenever possible”.
