St John Vianney Syro Malabar Mission

Pope Fransis

We are a Catholic community constituted largely of Catholics from Kerala, India living in  London. This Mission is part of the Syro-Malabar Eparchy of Great Britain which has its Sea in Preston, UK. The uniqueness of this centre is that we are consisted of those migrant people originally from Kerala, who wish to cherish and nourish their faith, liturgy and tradition and to integrate with their living context.

As we are flourishing as a unique Mission, we attempt to pass on our rich Catholic Faith, Liturgy and Tradition to our second generation who are born and brought up in the UK by means of regular Qurbana (Holy Mass in Syro-Malabar Rite), Catechesis and other means of spiritual formations such as Retreats, Family Prayer Units, Adorations, Charity etc at this Mission.

Now we are blessed to have our bishop Mar Joseph Srampickal to guide us in this endeavour. Fr Saju as our Chaplain, looks after our spiritual and community formation. If you live in or around South West London, you are very Welcome to join us to grow and to help others to grow.
