Perth witnessed many Malayalee Catholic families migrating from India and other various parts of the world at least since 1970s. It included Catholics of various rites, including Syro-Malabar rite. They integrated themselves into their respective Suburbian parishes. As Malayalee priests of Syro-Malabar parentage migrated to Perth, they offered Qurbana in the Syro Malabar Liturgy, on a voluntary basis on mutual demand, as an inherent expression of love and fellowship. By 2008, this progressed to Qurbana being celebrated once in a school term, quarter. This formed the basis for the organised gatherings as prayer communities in different localities. There was a significant increase in the arrival of Syro-Malabar families to Perth, from 2008.
