Rev. Fr. W. Hunold worked as a missionary from Kutela. Later he became the Apostolic Administrator of the diocese. In the beginning a small house was built at Chuhipali and then a house with three large rooms and a chapel by Rev. Fr. Joseph Strittmatter. Rev. Fr. Joseph Madappallimattam was appointed its parish priest in 1966. Rev. Fr. Sebastian Nedumudy was appointed the parish priest on January 8, 1968. A few acres of land and a tractor were bought for the church.
In February 1976 the present church was built by Fr. Xavier Kodathala. Besides the pastoral care of the people, other activities are medical service rendered by the Sisters of Hand Maids of Mary(HM), a technical training center and the people’s developmental activities by the Archdiocesan Social Welfare Society. The Hospital was started by Dr. Hiiffer, a German doctor and Vincentian Sisters rendered their service here and later on was handed over to the Sisters of Hand Maids of Mary in the 1980’s. A Secular Institute for women named “Khrist Sevikas” also rendered their service in the parish till the early 1980’s and the building used by them was later on converted into the technical training center.
