Balco was made a parish in 1986 and Rev. Fr. Joseph T. V., SAC was the first parish priest. He constructed the present presbytery. Because of the Aluminium plant a township had sprung up. The church was built during the tenure of Rev. Fr. Vincent Thottupattu, SAC. The Catholic population is on decrease as the old ones retire and settle elsewhere. There are not many Catholics coming to this place for jobs. Hence the catholic population is quite thin.
