Message from Vicar

Welcome to St. Mary’s Malankara Catholic Church, Surat, the first Malankara Church built in Gujarat. Though, we are a small, numbering around 50 families living in perfect harmony and unity, it is a steadily growing community of generous and dedicated members blooming the Malankara spirit in an around Surat. Within a short span of time, it has become envious to others in upholding and spreading the true love of our Lord and the spirit of evangelisation.
The Holy Spirit and abundant blessing of Mother Mary continues to guide and lead our parish as we  proactively respond to present day needs and challenges. It is an exciting time to be a member of our Church. As a betrayal of our loving dedication, mercy and compassion, a noble mission has been started to feed the poor in  the street. As a community of strong and arduous faith, we pray together, worship God on all Sundays, Wednesdays and First Friday of the month. Holy Mass on  Sundays , Wednesday’s Novena & Mass, First Friday Holy Mass & Adoration and Monthly prayer in a House are the source and summit of our faith.
Prayer requests, Mass intentions and contribution are most welcome
Sincerely in Christ,
Vicar & Members of Parish Council.
