Brahmavar (Goan) Orthodox Church is a self-governing branch of the Indian (Malankara) Orthodox Church. This is a uniate fraction from the Catholic Church formed under the leadership of Bishop Antonio Francisco Xavier Alvares in 1889 AD.
Antonio Francisco Xavier Alvares was ordained as the first Orthodox Metropolitan of Goa-Ceylon in 1889 AD by Paulose Mar Athanasious and Gheevarghese Mar Gregorios of Parumala at Orthodox Pazhaya Seminary.
Presently there are about 700 families in Goa in this self-governing part of Indian Orthodox Church.
