About Our Church

Back To Top

St Alphonsa Syro Malabar Catholic Church is the first Syro Malabar Mission in Canada under St Thomas Diocese, Chicago. Our Mission was inaugurated by Mar Jacob Angadiath on 7th October 2012 in Edmonton. Rev. Fr.Thomas Thaicheril is the present vicar of the Forane Church.

At Present our Church has 560 registered families and its size is swelling week by week. New comers, as well as the old families, are registering with us. The families assemble every day to celebrate the Holy Qurbana (Mass), to attend the Catechism and to engage in social and cultural activities. Every Thirunal is a fest and an occasion for spiritual renewal.

We celebrate all the feasts of our Lord - Christmas, Easter, Ascension and Pentecost; feast of blessed virgin Mary - The Assumption; feast of St Thomas the Apostle - Dukhrana and the feast of St Alphonsa, our Patroness. We have a get-together on Family Day and a one-day Picnic-cum-barbique every year. We are looking forward to more such activities in the future.
