Manapad (Tamil: மணப்பாடு) is a coastal village in far south India, 60 kilometres (37 mi) from Tuticorin and 18 km (11 mi) south of Tiruchendur.[1] St. Francis Xavier came to Manapad in 1542, when he began missionary activity on the Fishery coast.[1][2] He lived in a grotto cavern on the seaward face of a cliff and held mass at a chapel of the Captain's Cross, built from a ship's mast after a storm in 1540. Holy Cross Church, built close to the sea in 1581, has a relic fragment believed to be from the True Cross of Jerusalem.
