Blessed Chavara Kuriakose Elias (Chavara Achchan) and Sister Euphrasia (Evuprasamma) are elevated as Saints of the Catholic Churc

Followed by the Canonization of Blessed Sister Alphonsa as the first woman saint and the second person to become a saint from India after  Mumbai based St Gonsalo Garcia [who was born in 1556,desired to become a Catholic Priest, engaged in missionary work in Japan before being martyred in 1597 and was declared a saint by the Catholic Church in 1862], Now the Indian Church in particular and the whole country in general especially the state of Kerala are in jubilation on the declaration of two of its prestigious children loved by most of the backward caste people without any religious discrimination, to be elevated as Saints....!

The announcement of Blessed Father Chavara Kuriakose Elias, popularly called as Chavara Achchan and his disciple and nun Blessed Sister Euphrasia called as 'Evuprasamma' is a twin delight for the 2000 year-old Indian Church establkished by Apostle St. Thomas and the Society founded by Chavara Kuriakose Father, the CMI....!

Father Kuriakose Elias was not only a Spiritual and Religious leader of his time, but also played a significant role in the eradication of untouchability and many other evil practices that prevailed in the Indian society then.

To see his life history and all other information and images/pictures, details of his Holy tomb, the congregations founded by him etc. please check this official website of the Society established by the Saint CMI:
