About Church

The Present Holy Cross Forane Church although grew as a huge tree It has a long history to share. The very conception of Nadavayal came from the exodus of 10 pioneers from Travancore to Malabar.

Although the exodus was for an economic gain they realised they could not grow to the heights which they wanted without the blessing of their Hero Jesus. They searched for a place for worship which they could find in Pallikunnu which was quite far from Nadavayal still their hunger for God drew them to Pallikunnu.
