The existing Church was demolished, in the month of January 2015, during the tenure of Fr Robert Antony, due to its weak condition,
insufficiency of place and increased Catholic families. Therefore, the Parish Clergy and the parishioners sought the permission of the Archbishop to construct the new Church at the same place.
