Lourdes Matha Church Mammood P.O., Changanasserry Kottayam Kerala, established in 1933, is a Syro Malabar Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Changanasserry, under the jurisdiction of the Syro Malabar Major Archiepiscopal Church in union with the Roman Pontiff Holy Father Francis.
Lourdes Matha Church has a history which is slightly different from that of other churches. Usually schools come up after the churches are established. Here reverse was the case. St. Shanthal’s school was established in 1922. Palakkunnel Vattammakal Ninan Cheriyath donated two and a half acres of land to establish a school, convent and a church at Mulanthanamkunnu on the request of Rev. Sr. Shanthal, a founder member of Adoration convent, Mallappally. Though the school could be started immediately, the other two conditions in the document could not be implemented then. Later, on receiving complaints from the Palakkunnel family, His Excellency Mar James Kalassery directed the then school manager, Rev. Fr. Sebastian Kalaripparambil (“Vaidanachan”) to build a church.
