About Our Parish
The Indian Telephone Industries Ltd. (ITI), established in 1949, built a township with 1000 dwelling quarters for its employees. During the 1950’s many employees moved into the new township. There were some Catholics too among them. They needed a church to cater to their spiritual needs. The I.T.I. management responded favourably to a petition submitted by the Catholics and permitted Sunday services in either the cricket pavilion or the sports club of the company.
The Salesian priests and brothers of Kristu Jyothi College under Fr. Di Fiore extended their help to the Catholics in meeting their spiritual needs. Fr. John Nedumpuram completed the construction of the church building. Archbishop Packiam Arokiaswamy blessed and opened Holy Family Church on 9th September 1975.MORE
Rev. Fr. Amarnath Dinesh Roy is the parish priest of the Holy Family Church. He was appointed as the Parish Priest of the Holy Family Church, Ramamurthy Nagar on 14 June 2016. Fr. Amarnath is a very young dynamic priest full of energy and enthusiasm, who brought a lot of innovation in the parish.
Fr. Amar inculcated the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the minds of the parishioners. He encouraged people to install the picture of Sacred Heart of Jesus in their houses and pray to it every day. He has also introduced many innovations in liturgy such as reciting of 1000 beads rosary. He motivates children to attend catechism by organizing several special programs for them and by providing them snacks. With the help of Archbishop Dr. Bernard Moras, he is constructing a new presbytery.MORE
