Dhamtari was a sub-station of Banjari Parish. Rev. Fr. John Xavier was appointed here in 1995. After a year he was transferred and again it came under Banjari parish. It was made a parish in 2000 and Rev. Fr. Soosai Anthony was appointed the priest in-charge. A prayer Hall cum Presbytery was built by him. Later an Eng. Med. School was started and in 2012 a church was built. Sisters of St. Anne’s of Bangalore give their services in the school as well as help out in the pastoral activities. Dhamtari has become a district and is a fast growing town. There are some catholic families employed in government and other private sectors.
Nagari is a substation under Dhamtari parish which is 65 kms away. Holy Mass is celebrated there once in a month and if necessary more than once.
