Description

HISTORY AND PRESENT ACTIVITIES

Denkanikotta was a substation of Adaikalapuram when the Vincentians took charge of Adaikalapuram Mission. On June 6, 1973, the new Church of Denkanikotta was completed and blessed by the late Bishop of Salem, Rt. Rev. Dr. V.S. Selvanathan, in the presence of the then Superior General Very Rev. Fr. George Kammattil. In the same year Bishop raised it as an independent Parish under the patronage of St. Little Flower, having Thandavan and Sebastiarpuram as sub-stations. At present, Denkanikotta is one of the flourishing Parishes in the Diocese of Dharmapuri. In the Anbalaya retreat Centre, we have regular residential retreats every second and fourth week of the month. We arrange also Night Vigils and one day retreat programs for the faithful.
