St Andrew’s, the first Church in Vepery is one of the earliest Roman Catholic churches in Madras. It is the Mother Church for the famous Votive Shrine in Kilpauk, Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine in Perambur, St Joseph’s in Vepery, St Anthony’s in Pudupet and St Anthony’s in Narasingapuram. The old Church of St Andrew’s was built by Rev Fr Felix, an Italian Capuchin in 1830. Msgr D Raju who was the 28th Parish Priest [1940 – 1971] of St Andrew’s Church built the new Church which now exists with great splendour. Msgr P Thomas, late Archbishop of Bangalore, was the Parish Priest from 1931 to 1939.The new Church was constructed at the same site as the old one constructed by the Capuchin Father in Kalathiappa Street.

Do you have any old church records of baptisms, burials, birth or marriages dating from the 1800s and if so can they be viewed and how. I live in Australia but my ancestors lived in the parish and I am researching ,y family history
Please send me the English Mass timings on a sunday at a Roman Catholic Church near Madras Central Railway Station. Full address of Church is required with the English Mass timings (ONLY ENGLISH)
