Brief History:

Thalamuthunager is a mission parish in the sense that Catholics here are settlers from other places and small in number. In 1983 some immigrants form Srilanka brought with them a statue of Our Lady of Madu. Fr. Tiburtius, built a thatched church for this statue. This parish was bifurcated from Innaciarpuram with Alangarathattu, Arockiapuram, Mathanager, Thalamuthunager, Rajapalayam, Saveriarpuram and Siluvaippatti as its substations. The first head quarters was the Leprosarium. Fr. Antony Robert was made the parish priest on the 2 nd of June 1986 . He constructed the present church as well as the rectory at the place of the house where the statue of Our Lady of Madu had been kept before the thatched church was built.
