The church built during the reign of Britishers is well maintained without much alteration. The moment entering the hall, anybody will feel being there in the history. Regular masses are stills held.

It was a church discovered by chance... while coming back from St Anthonys church.... at Parrys. While we werent too sure about the place, it was nice to see an old culture. You need to ask for it by name, else it looks hidden really. Spend some time to soak in the old atmosphere....
