History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we” 

St. Thomos to Fr. Maudit 

The history of the Church in India begins with the arrival of St Thomas one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus at Kondungallur in Kerala on the Malabar Coast in 52 AD. St Thomas had established the faith in Kerala and Tamilnadu till he was crowned with martyrdom at Mylapore on the East Coast of India where his tomb is preserved even on this day.

The first contact of the Telugus with Christianity dates to the beginning of 16 th Century with arrival of Portuguese in India . However the attempts are fruitful only with the arrival of French Jesuit missionaries in early 1700's, the first Jesuit Missionary from the Carnatic Mission to reach the Telugus in their homeland was Fr Maudit. At Punganur in Chittoor district a widow belonging to Velama Community took up the faith along with her four children. Later many miles away from Punganur at Krishnapuram in Ananthapur district some of Weaver community people including one Rangappa entered the fold of the Church in 1712-13.
