Est. Year: 2009

In 2012 in response to the request of His Beatitude George Cardinal Alancherry, the Major Archbishop of Syro-Malabar Church, the MCBS EMMAUS province took a bold step to provide pastoral assistance to Syro-Malabar Diasporas in the state of Gujarat. Our priests worked in the two dioceses of Ahmadabad and Baroda by taking care of the pastoral needs of the Syro-Malabar faithful.

In 2012 we purchased 20 cents of land and St Joseph English Medium School building in Pandesara, Surat from the Federal Bank. At present, under Shamshabad diocese, we work in Surat looking after the pastoral responsibilities of St. Alphonsa parish, St. Thomas Chapel Pandesara, Mother Mary Church Bhestan, and Christ the King Bardoli. We run an English Medium School at Pandesara.
