Kerala Regional Latin Catholic Council

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN KERALA IS A COMMUNION OF THREE INDIVIDUAL CHURCHES; LATIN, SYRO- MALABAR, SYRO–MALANKARA. THE LATIN CHURCH HAS ELEVEN ECCLESIASTICAL UNITS OUT OF 29 DIOCESES IN KERALA. THE PRESENCE OF THE LATIN CHURCH IN INDIA, PARTICULARLY ON THE COAST OF KERALA HAS PROTRACTED OVER ELEVEN CENTURIES OR MORE. HOWEVER, THE WORK OF EVANGELIZATION WAS ENTHUSIASTICALLY REVIVED BY THE WESTERN MISSIONARIES IN THE 13TH CENTURY. THE WESTERN RECORDS OF THE FRANCISCANS AND DOMINICANS CONTAIN THE EVIDENCE OF THE EARLY LATIN MISSIONS IN INDIA. GIOVANNI DI MONTE CORVINE, O.F.M., JORDAN CATALANI, O.P., ODORICO DI PORDENONE, O.F.M., AND GIOVANNI DI MARIGNOLLI, O.F.M., WERE THE OUTSTANDING PROTAGONISTS.
