About the Catechism Unit

The Syro-Malabar Church was known as the Church of St.Thomas Christians until the 18th century because it was founded by St.Thomas, one of the Apostles of Jesus Christ. He landed at Cranganore, (Kodungalloor) Kerala in 52 AD, and founded seven Christian communities at Palayur, Kodungalloor, Kokkamangalam, Kottakavu (Parur), Quilon, Niranam and Nilakkal. St.Thomas died as a martyr at Chinnamalai in Mylapore, Tamil Nadu in 72 AD. He was stabbed by some Brahmins for refusing to take part in the worship of a Hindu Goddess. The tomb of the Apostle is venerated at the Little Mount, Mylapore, Chennai. Thus Christianity in India is as old as Christianity itself.

Though the Syro-Malabar Church existed outside the Roman empire, it maintained communion with the Church of Rome, through East Syrian or Chaldean or Babylonian Church. In 345 under the leadership of Thomas of Knanai, a group of Christians from Persian Empire migrated to Southern part of India and their descendants are called Knanites. They also belong to Syro-Malabar Church.
