Christianity was brought to India by St Thomas (Doubting Thomas) somewhere in 50AD. Later in the sixteenth century another saint, Saint Francis Xavier spread the word of Christ in India. Saint Francis’ body is still preserved in the Church of Bom Jesus in Goa.

Jesus was Brought to India by Doubting (Saint) Thomas


Saint Thomas doubted the resurrection of Jesus but he was the Apostle who spread the word of Christ in India. Famous and popular church of Mount Mary is an evidence of the vigor and strength of the faith in India. These crosses, trinkets, statuettes and candles are popular souvenirs for vistors to Mumbai churches.
