Holy Family Church, Kattappuram

Appapadam Kappela The foundation stone for Holy Family Church was laid on 8th of September 1997 in a land owned by the parish at a place called Kattappuram, which is 1.5 kilometers west to the Koratty church. The construction of the church was completed within 15 months as a result of the tireless efforts and cooperation of the parishioners and plentiful help of the Koratty church.

The consecration of the church was done by cardinal Mar Varkey Vithayathil, on 28th of December 1998. Rev. Fr. Kuriakose cheruvally who was the then parish priest of Koratty church gave leadership for the construction activities. A priest was appointed here from 3rd of February 2001 onwards. Now this church functions as an independent station church under the Koratty parish.
