St Thomas History
Saint Thomas Day, also known as Feast of Saint Thomas, is one of the important Christian festivals celebrated in India. The day is observed to commemorate the martyrdom of Saint Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. Saint Thomas is believed to have come to India in 52 AD, where he preached and established churches in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. According to legend, Saint Thomas was martyred by being speared to death in the eastern state of Tamil Nadu, where he had built a church in Mylapore. The church, now known as the Santhome Basilica Cathedral, is a revered pilgrimage site for Christians in India.
The day is celebrated with great zeal and religious fervor, particularly by the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church and the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. Activities such as prayer meetings, processions, and special church services are organized on this day. It is a day of remembrance and devotion, and it is also an opportunity for Christians in India to reflect on the life and teachings of Saint Thomas.
Saint Thomas Day is a reminder of the rich Christian heritage of India and the contributions of Saint Thomas towards its growth and development. The occasion also provides a platform for interfaith dialogue and encourages people of different faiths to come together and celebrate the diversity and unity of India. Saint Thomas Day is observed annually on July 3rd.
