India: Celebration of First Ever ‘Christian Day’.

Christians of various denominations in India announced that they will celebrate for the first time what they described as “Indian Christian Day” on July 3, feast of Saint Thomas the Apostle.

According to tradition, the saint supposedly traveled to India, as far as the Malabar Coast, which is in modern-day Kerala State, to preach the Gospel sometime in 52 AD.

Saint Thomas was reportedly martyred near Chennai in 72 AD and many Christians in India regard the saint as the patron of the country.
