Holy midnight mass (English)
If you are an english speaking foreigner planning to visit Kerala during Christmas, don’t worry over missing the Midnight Mass.
Several churches in the state, especially those situated in major towns and cities, conduct Holy Masses in English. This video clip is of the Holy Mass held at a church at Vellayambalam in the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram.
In Kerala, special services are held at all churches across the state on Christmas eve. For a Keralite Christian, the Holy Midnight Mass is a not-to-miss one.
The history of Christianity in the state starts with the visit of St. Thomas in 52 AD. The Apostle founded seven and a half churches in the state.
