History of our parish

“The first ever holy mass of our community who were craving for a church to offer holy mass in Syro Malabar Rite and in our mother tongue, Malayalam language was fulfilled at Sri Aiyappa School premise, Muni Reddy Palaya during the year 1990.  To be precise, it was on Christmas day of the same year and the mass was celebrated by Late Rev. Fr. George Nedumpalakunnel.”

" Dear Rev. Fr. Roy and Parishioners May peace be with everyone: I am extremely delighted to know that St. Alphonsa Forane Church, Sultanpalya is going to launch a Website. On this occasion I wish to congratulate everyone who worked towards achieving this goal. May the ultimate objective of uniting all faithful and spreading the word of God be achieved through this Website. Jesus is our true redeemer and only hope for transforming and enriching our lives and by practicing his teachings in our lives to set forth a good example for others. All the difficulties we faced in the past should be lessons for us to get closer to God our Heavenly Father. Therefore, let us be aware of his plans and look forward to opportunities for spreading the word of God As we enter a new era with the launching of the Website, may this help everyone to keep abreast with the Parish's accompaniments, news and events. Let this also be a medium to spread peace, unity and brotherhood far and wide among other communities as well. Let us intercede through St, Alphonsa and worship ardently to Lord Jesus Christ. . "

" Peace and Joy to everyone from the Alphonsian family. As St.Paul says, "...the Love of Christ impulse us" (2Corithians 5,14). The Lord in His Merciful love has showered countless blessings upon us over the past decades.He has anointed and sent committed and zealous missionaries to this vineyard to care of His people.The past seven years has been monumental for this 'Bharananganam of Bengaluru', thanks to the inexplicable efforts of Rev.Fr.Roy Vattakkunnel, the 'Faber Dei' (God's Architect).We bow our heads in gratitude to Almighy God for the 'great work', he has accomplished through His faithful ministers. We, the Alphonsians are committed to spread the 'Joy of the Gospel' through works of mercy. May the Lord of heaven and earth bless everyone through the mighty intercession of St.Alphonsa.."

Mentor's message

Rev. Fr. Roy Vattakunnel

" St. Alphonsa Forane church, Sultanpalya- known as “The Bharanganam of Bangalore”, is a place of prayer, worship, peace and serenity. People who visit this church obtain great spiritual blessings through the intercession of St. Alphonsa, the heavenly patroness of the parish. The parish community is a typical model of the Early Christian Community, where in all the believers were one in heart and mind. All Parishners joined hand in hand and gave their personal time and effort to build the church: from Children to the elderly, all joined with great dedication in the public work called “Pothuppani” to build the church. We saw the dream of Parishners turning into reality when the Multipurpose Parish hall was completed in just over a year’s time and by God’s grace, the Monumental church construction was completed in another two years’ time as scheduled. "

The voluntary generous contributions of the members and well wishers of the church helped us to complete the church construction well within the budget and without any kind of debts.

Special Thanks to Construction Core Committee Mr. Shajan. K. Joseph- Coordinator, Mr. Joslin Sabestian- Architect, Members- Mr. Alexander C.T, Mr. Abraham M.M, Mr. Antony M.P, Mr. Pradeep Joseph, Mr. Ouseph N.K, Mr. John V.P, Mr. Davis V.T, Mr. Tom Sabestian.

The newly consecrated church stands as the symbol of God’s Grace as well as the hard work and the unity of members of the parish and all the well-wishers.
We thank God almighty for his immense grace and abundant mercy showered on us at the church construction period and now when we look at the graceful church it makes ourselves proud as it stands to emphasize the power of our unity in love.
