HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES
At the invitation of Rt. Rev. Mallavarappu Prakash, the bishop of Cuddapah, we began our mission at Onipenta in 1999. It was the outcome of several feasibility surveys conducted by our fathers working in Andhra Pradesh. Very Rev. Fr. James Chelapurath the then Provincial Superior appointed Rev. Fr. James Manithara as the pioneer in this mission in consultation with Rev. Fr. Paul Puthuva the then Mission Superior. The diocese entrusted us 2.56 acres of land and the parish with 5 substations for our pastoral care. The foundation stone of new parish church was laid in September 2001. On 12th December 2011 we could dedicate the newly constructed Parish Church. We are conducting one day prayer convention on every first Saturday of the month by Premagiri retreat team.
Fr. James Manithara VC stayed in a rented house and completed the construction of Presbytery cum Vincentian house which was blessed and inaugurated on 28thJanuary 2001. In the year 2014 we have started a play school with LKG and UKG in the campus.
