There was no parish church since fifty years of the erection of the parish at Ottapalam which was looked after by the Diocese of Calicut; the liturgical functions were held at the convent chapel of the Sisters of the Apostolic Carmel.With much effort we built a new Church dedicated to Infant Jesus adjacent to the presbytery there. We appreciate Rev. Fr. Manuel Muthumakuzhy, TOR, for his strenuous effort in collecting financial assistance from various sources and for working hard to complete the church. We appreciate his dedicated service in this parish. This new church was blessed and opened by our Bishop on 6 January 2019.
