St. RITA’s CHAPEL – THE ADAYAR – a cultural mapping.

A continuation post ( San Thome Basilica )…
15th October 2016
St. Rita’s Chapel ( previously Church ) is  inside the San Thome Matriculation Higher Secondary School. USCAN donated liberally to this Church. It was built by the Armenians and there are two inscriptions available on the east side of the wall facing Santhome high Road. The Armenian characters say that “In Memory of Armenian Nation, 1729.” During this year only St. Thomas grave was opened.

Another inscription in Portuguese  on the same east side wall ( on the Santhome High Road side ) says that the church was rebuilt in 1740. Previously the entrance was from road side on South. Latter the entrance was shifted to North , inside the school. The Chapel was maintained by Manford brothers  of St Gabriel from 1954.
