This Church was a pet Church of the late Archbishop Rt Rev Louis Mathias SDB. One of the salient features of this Church is its vibrant Parish community. The other is the presence of two schools. One is run by the Patrician Brothers and the other by the Montfort Brothers of St Gabriel. The former caters to the educational needs of the normal children while the latter sees to the needs of the Blind & Deaf Children.
