About the Pastorate

St. Thomas Church at Palayamchettikulam, was dedicated on 4th April 1913. It was originally a C.M.S. Church. The congregation has nearly 150 families and all of them are interrelated. Most of them are residing outside the village due to their occupation. Others have paddy fields and lands. The people are very tough in nature and very traditional.
