Parish Priest

Brief history:


Christianity had its strong root in Kamanayakkanpatti even before 18th century. The Priests of Society of Jesus found out that Kamanayakanpatti was the apt place for the apostolic mission. Fr. John De Britto chose this centre and it became their residence in 1688. The earnest priest from Italy the greatest poet in Tamil the author of Tembavani Fr. Lonstrantine Besehi (Viramamunivar) also served there as Parish Priest. He introduced Indianzation of precession with Radhms and chapparems during the titular festivals. The suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1773. Stopped only the visit of those priests. In fact, it strengthened the people Spiritual life. The people of Kamanayakanpatti proved themselves as nearly and pillars of the church during their period. The former Bishop of Coimbatore Most Rev. C.M. Visuvasam, D.D. belonged to this parish.
