The St. Thomas Syro Malabar Catholic Forane Church in Somerset originated as a mission organized by 15 families in 2000. As the number of families increased, we decided to build our own church. In 2015, our new church was built in Somerset and inaugurated. We currently have about 250 families in our parish family. The St. Thomas Syro Malabar Catholic Forane Church in Somerset stands out among similar Syro-Malabar parishes in the diocese for the Christian love among parish families. Let us pray that this sense of love, fellowship, and sharing continue in our parish as we grow together and go further in our journey of faith.
