United Kingdom Knanaya Catholic Association (UKKCA)

United Kingdom Knanaya Catholic Association (UKKCA) is a national charity registered with Charity Commission for England and Wales. UKKCA is a Knanaya Catholic Lay association of the people who migrated from the Catholic Archdiocese of Kottayam. The UKKCA was established in 2001 based on our special ethnic identity with the blessings and permission of the then Archbishop of Kottayam, Mar Kuriakose Kunnaserry. It was according to the guidelines published by Late Cardinal Varkey Vithayathil, the then Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Church- ‘for recognizing Lay Associations of Syro-Malabar Faithful outside the Syro-Malabar Eparchies in India and abroad’. Present Major Archbishop, Cardinal George Alenchery and the Syro Malabar Bishop’s Synod are well aware of the functioning of UKKCA as a lay organisation for Knanaya Catholic families in the UK.
