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.

Dearest parishioners, on behalf of stsmcc committee, we extend our heart felt thanks for all your help, co- operation and prayer during our dukrana  celebrations. We sincerely pray for the blessing of St Thomas to be bestowed upon you and your family. God bless.
