The presence of a Church at Banda was a long felt need. It is situated about sixty kms. away from Shahjahanpur and it is the central place for two interior mission stations at Pipriya and Bambi. Bambi, which was a visiting station from Shahjahanpur has been attached to Banda. A piece of land was purchased to construct the church and the parish house. Fr. Julian Dâ€™Souza has been appointed as the first parish priest of Banda. FSM Sisters were invited to render their services at the place. A dispensary was built and it was inaugurated in Oct. 2002.
