Our History & Growth

St.Antony's church Gowrivakkam is the fraternity of the Syro Malabar catholics settled in a wide area from Tambaram to Pallikaranai of South Chennai.

Chennai is one of the metros with a very strong presence of Syro Malabar catholics.  In 1983 , the Syro Malabar Bishops Conference entrusted the pastoral care of the city to the Diocese of Irinjalakkuda  and thus the Chennai Mission started functioning from Dec 14th 1983 with Rev Fr.Jose palatty  as the First Chaplain.

The Mahalakshmi nagar church of South Chennai had syro malabar mass even before the Chennai Mission came into being.This was started by Rev.Fr.Joseph Thaiparambil at the persistent request of the families of Syro Malabar Catholics serving at the Indian Air Force Base, Tambaram . This was taken over by the Mission and subsequent Chaplains like  Fr.Jose Maliakkal , Fr.Varghese Pereppadan , Fr. Charley Alookkaran , Fr. Antony Mukkatukarakan, Fr.Johnson Tharayil , Fr. Andrews Chethalan , Fr. Saji Valiaveettil and Fr. Davis Kalappurakkal,... all excelled in their role of giving pastoral care to the faithful here.

In  January 2004 Rev Fr.Anto Karippai and Fr.Thomas Elamakunnapuzha took charge of the southern region of the Chennai Mission. In March 2004, the Holy Family Congregation started their convent at Gowriwakkam and this fraternity got a new impetus and rejuvenation by the house visits of the sisters and the hard work of Fr. Anto Karippai, ably supported by the then leaders of the laity. From January 2005 Syro Malabar mass has been celebrated every Sunday in the convent chapel and the fraternity adopted  St. Antony as the patron saint of the unit. Slowly but steadily, the unit grew in strength and faith and the number swelled from 45 to 100 members and efforts were made to procure a plot of land to build a church of our own under the leadership of Fr. Anto Karippai.
