Fujairah Malankara Catholic Community
FUJAIRAH Catholic faithful have been looked after by Fr. Attilio Francescherri, from Sharjah. In 1992 Fujairah had its own parish priest in the person of Reverend Father Michael Cardos, having the care of Khorfakkan and Dibba. The seaport, airport, and various commercial activities grew in their operation and so the number of Catholic population swore up and hence naturally Malankaraites too. Probably from the beginning of the new church in 2002 Malankara Catholic Community also started to have bimonthly Mass until Reverend Father Jojji Patrick, SDB became the parish priest, wherefrom the community have Malankara Mass every Month. St. Mary’s residential High School is a big blessing for children and relief for parents in the Fujairah area because Catholic education is well appreciated by all sectors of the society.
Malankara community is very fervent and active in Fujairah, though it is a small community compared to our bigger communities. All activities are well taken care of by the members together with the efficient leadership of James and the enthusiastic team with him. The prayerful atmosphere and the enjoyable togetherness this community enjoys are very evident when they gather together. The Christian aspects of caring and sharing are enjoyably visible and they consciously are careful to keep it up.
