Port Kollam church

The ancient Port of Quilon was here. Traders from Far East and Middle East landed here. St. Thomas the Apostle landed here from Kodungaloor and established a church making this parish the inheritor of one of the churches established by the Apostle himself. In 823 Mar Sapor and Mar Prot ministered here. Remnants of an early church lies in the ocean bed a couple of miles into the sea. In 1510 a new church was built as a result of the concordance between the Queen of Designanad and the King of Portugal. The present church was blessed on January 23, 1993. Rev. Fr. Richard Fernandez, Rev. Fr. Jose Puthenveedu and Fr. Silvie Antony took the leadership for the construction of this church.
