St. George Simhasana Church, Perumpilly, Kochi

St. George Simhasana Church at Perumpilly stands on the site where a sunday school was started by Saintly Parumala Thirumeni over a 100 years ago, and where Thirumeni used to spend long hours in meditation and solitude.

This place which was known as 'thusikkunnu' was bought by a few families of Mulanthuruthy in 1932 to construct a Simhasana church (Patriarchal parish church) under the direct jurisdiction of the Holy See and was registered in the name of Mor Yulius Elias Qoro, the then Patriarchal Delegate to Malankara. On July 9, 1938, a small church dedicated to St.George was consecrated here by Mor Yulius Bava.

Perumpilly church gained importance after Fr. P M Geevarghese Parappallil of Puthupally, Kottayam, was appointed Vicar by Mor Yulius Bava on September 9, 1959. The prayerful life, simplicity and dedication of this priest attracted many to this church. His concern for the poor and needy is recalled by many to this day.
