Immaculate Heart of Mary Church was founded in 1958. The church has completed six decades of service to society in 2018. The church celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in April 2018. The present building of the church is in a dilapidated condition with leaking and moth eaten roof as it has completed 60 years of existence. Moreover, the space inside the church is not enough during the regular services offered in the church. Considering the situation the Parish Pastoral Parishad and the Parish Assembly have arrived at a decision to refurbish the church. This will cost an amount of Rs 1.5 crores.
Most of the parishioners of the church belong to lower income group of the society and it will be difficult for them to raise such a huge amount of money that is required for the refurbishment. Hence, we request the help of all devotees and general public for this noble and genuine cause. The donation from people, whatever be the amount, will be graciously accepted. The church also prays for its patrons everyday during the holy mass. The names of contributors who donate Rs 10,000 or more will be engraved on the marble stone.
The various categories of donors is given below:
* Patron - Rs 10 lacs and above
* Founder - Rs five lacs and above
* Benefactor - Rs one lac and above
* Donor - Rs 25,000 and above
* Well wisher - Rs 10,000 and above
This information is shared and appeal is placed by Fr Valerian D'Souza, parish priest, Gegory Rosario, vice-president of Pastoral Parishad, Sharath Rosario, secretary and the members of Pastoral Parishad.
