It is my pleasure to be able to visit the knanaya community in Australia. This is a historic occasion for all of us. Since its inception in April 2003, this fledgling community has been rapidly growing from strength to strength both through the breadth and scope of the community's activities and also through the increasing number of knanaya migrants to Australia from various parts of the world.
Special thanks must go to Fr. Jacob Thadathil and to Fr. Thomas Karamakuzhy for their initiative, guidance and ongoing support of this community and to the elected members of this community for providing leadership.
The coming together of this community is a most reassuring sign that the knanaya spirit, culture, heritage and traditions are alive and well. I am confident that the founding members of this community, together with all its current members, have paved the way for future generations, holding the torch high for them. May this light shine brightly into the future.
It is also my great pleasure to formally inaugurate the Australian Knanaya Community Website. May it be an instrument for knowledge and learning and a tool for constructive achievements and positive change in our world.
Your brother in the risen Jesus Christ.
Archbishop Mathew Moolakattu Archdiocese of Kottayam.
