Brief History:

In 1870 a church was built for Otthasai Annai. At that time about 130 Catholics lived around that church. This church had been a substation to Punnaikayal, Sethukuvaithan and Pazhaiyakayal and St. Joseph’s parish at Eral. For the benefit of the people, on the 6th of December 1999 it became an independent parish. Now about 500 people are in this parish. Sivakalai and Sivakalai Parambu are its substations. A bell tower of 107 feet adorns this church. This parish has St. Therese Middle school. Fr. V. Irudayaraj has been its correspondent since 12-6-2000.
