Sippikulam had been one of the 26 substations of the ancient Mission of Vembar served by Fr. Pankaru, a Jesuit priest since 1873. During the time of Fr. Adaikalanather (1889-1893), Sippikulam, Kallorani and Vepalodai came under the then Tiruchirapolly diocese from the governance of Mylapore diocese.
