A New Chapter Begins: St. Paul’s Syro-Malankara Catholic Mission’s Inaugural Holy Mass in Leicester


In a spirited celebration of faith and community, the St. Paul’s Syro-Malankara Catholic Mission in Leicester marked its inaugural Holy Mass on April 7, 2024, at St. Edward’s Catholic Church, Leicester. This significant event heralded the establishment of the 21st Mission of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church in the United Kingdom, a witness to the growing footprint of the Church in the region and its enduring commitment to spreading the message of the Gospel.

The inaugural celebration was led by Rev. Dr. Kuriakose Thadathil as the main celebrant, with Rev. Fr. James Elanjickal serving alongside him. Together, they provided a deeply spiritual and uplifting experience for all present.

The choice of St. Edward’s Catholic Church for the inaugural Mass underscores a message of unity and inclusivity within the Catholic community. Known for its welcoming approach to various Catholic rites and traditions, St. Edward’s offered an ideal venue for this momentous gathering. The church’s rich history and commitment to serving the local community aligned perfectly with the mission’s vision of fostering a vibrant spiritual life among its members.

Leicester’s diverse cultural backdrop added a unique dimension to the event, reflecting the city’s long-standing tradition of celebrating its heritage while embracing new influences. The establishment of St. Paul’s Mission in such a dynamic environment heralds a promising future for the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church in engaging with a wider audience and contributing to the cultural mosaic of Leicester.

The inaugural Mass was more than a religious ceremony; it was a communal affirmation of faith, an embrace of new beginnings, and a pledge to continue the tradition of the Holy Qurbono on the first Sunday of every month. This regular gathering is anticipated to be a cornerstone of spiritual growth and fellowship for the Malankara faithful in the region.

Looking ahead, St. Paul’s Mission aspires to be a spiritual home for its members, offering a range of religious, educational, and community services. The mission is dedicated to nurturing the faith of its congregation, fostering unity among the diverse members of the Catholic Church, and making a positive impact in the Leicester community and beyond.

The Syro-Malankara Catholic Church extends its deepest gratitude to Rev. Dr. Kuriakose Thadathil, Rev. Fr. James Elanjickal, and all who contributed to the success of the inaugural Mass. With open hearts and open doors, St. Paul’s Mission looks forward to welcoming new members and visitors to its congregation, continuing to spread the Gospel’s message of hope, love, and salvation.
