Brief History:

Initially a small Chapel was built by Fr John Vincent for the convenience of the workers employed in the Heavy Vehicles Factory and the Priest officiating in the Parish Church of Avadi attended to the spiritual needs of these workers. This was subsequently made as a sub-station of Avadi. It was erected as a Parish by Archbishop of Madras-Mylapore, Dr R Arulappa, in 1986 and the first Parish Priest was Fr. T.S. Kurian . In 2003 Fr Prasad renovated the Church and constructed a grotto to Our Lady of Lourdes. Devi Nagar and Annanur Parish were carved out of this Parish. In 2004, Morai, which was the sub-station of Devi Nagar, was entrusted to this Parish. Apart from this, the Parish has two more sub-stations in Kovil Pathaagai and Poongpuzhil Nagar.
