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.”
