"Go,therefore, make disciples of all nations... and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you" (Jn 28:19-20)

Welcome to St Alphonsa College of Arts and Science

The Diocese of Thuckalay, since its establishment, has been pondering over the thought of extending its educational outreach in the field of higher education. Mar George Alencherry, the first bishop of the diocese, had been trying to find an appropriate location for the establishment of an institution for higher education. Several locations were explored and inspected with the help of priests and lay leaders of the Diocese. The new Bishop of the Diocese, Mar George Rajendran, SDB did not let down the aspirations of the priests, religious and faithful of the Diocese and carried the dream forward and took the decision to establish the institute of higher education in Soosaipuram, Karinkal and named it as St. Alphonsa College of Arts and Science. All efforts were made for the rapid construction of the College. Finally, on June 31, 2014, St. Alphonsa College of Arts and Science was founded with 148 students in four departments, such as Commerce, English, Physics and Mathematics, in a glittering ceremony, which began with seeking of Divine Blessings through Holy Mass.
