Brief History:

Report of the Jesuits reports that there had been a church dedicated to Our Lady at Vallioor as early as 1713. In course of time this Catholic community deteriorated. The tireless efforts undertaken by Fr. Antony S. Fernando amidst countless difficulties, challenges and oppositions made Vallioor as an independent parish in 1973. The thorny and rocky ground was made straight and a big compound was built with appropriate buildings for the new parish. He built a beautiful church for Our Lady of Fatima. In 1973 the then ProNuncio the Most. Rev. Joseph Caprio blessed and consecrated this church.
