Parish Priest

Brief history:

The aim and objectives of any parish is to bring about social change by living out the vision of the kingdom values of Jesus Christ. Keeping this concept in mind the parish at Pavoorchatram was officially erected on. This is to enhance the faithful to have closer contact with the Parish Priest, have a meaningful participation in the liturgical celebrations, etc. Thus they become promoters of Kingdom values. This new Parish was bifurcated from the parish of Avudaiyanoor and Rev. Fr. Charles was appointed as the first Parish Priest. Its main station is at Pavoorchatram and the Patron is St. Antony of Padova. Also it has seven other sub-stations. Three sub stations have chapels and the other do not have any.
