St. Francis of Assisi Church, Assisi Nagar

The Kerala Catholic Association started the Assisi Co-operative Housing Society in 1975 and in 1983 about 50 catholic Malayalee families belonging to the society settled in Assisi Nagar. In order to meet the spiritual and religious needs of the families CMI fathers offered Holy Qurbana and other sacraments on Sundays and other important occasions.
