Welcome to St. John Nepumcian Forane Church, Parappukkara

The pilgrimage centre of St. John's Forane Church occupies most prominence in Parappukkara in 3 Villages. This is one of the most ancient churches. It is believed to be established in A.D. 400. Thanks to St. Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus , who came to Crangannore alias Kodungallore which place is located 30 km. away from Parappukkara. The Dedication of the church is changed from St. Mary to St. John Nepumcian after the canonization of the Saint in 1729. Very ancient paintings of eighteen hundreds are kept in intact. The cross erected in about AD 1600 is of historical importance. The Church at Parappukkara had been dedicated to Mother Mary. It is widely believed that the Arch Bishop of Verapoly had ordered a statue of St. John Nepumcian for the Catholic Church at Parappur; but when it imported it is brought by mistake to Parappukkara because of the resemblance of the names. Then the church at Parappukkara is dedicated to the Saint.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
