Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 'St. Anthony's Forane Church' is located at Ollur in Kerala, India. The church belongs to Syro-Malabar Catholic Archdiocese of Thrissur. According to rough figures there are around 4,000 Christian families in the parish. Because of the huge presence of Christian people in Ollur, with its religious, educational, medical, social-service, and secular organisations and institution, Ollur has been called as "Chinna Roma" (Small Rome). The church is constructed on a hill-top which is the highest location in the area. The church is surrounded by a huge protective compound wall called Elephant Wall (Aana Mathil). When Thrissur Vicariate Apostolic was erected in 1887, Ollur was the richest, most populous, and influential parish, so much that the Vicar of the Ollur parish and a priest from the parish were included in A.E. Medlycot’s four-member diocesan apex council. A Vicar and parish priest assisted by three priests in addition to the dozens of Rev. Sisters work for church regularly. St. Anthony's Forane Church has 18 churches under its jurisdiction.
