In 1998, two of our missionaries Frs. John Puthussery and John Karukapallil arrived in Khammam diocese. Fr. John Puthussery took charge of Penubally Parish and Fr. John Karukapallil took charge of Julurupadu parish which was bifurcated from Kothagudem parish. Both the priests were living in rented houses in their respective places. In August 2001, Fr. John Karukapallil was relieved from pastoral work in Julurupadu Parish. Fr. John Puthussery purchased the land for Penubally parish.
