Before the inception of the diocese of Kalyan,the Syro-Malabar Catholics of Mahakali attended the Little Flower Church, Chakala for their spiritual needs. Gradually population increased and felt the need for a separate place of worship. Because of the efforts of the parishioners and well-wishers under the guidance of Rev. Fr. Dominic Mundatt we were able to purchase around 800 sq.ft. area and it was named as St. Joseph Centre. On 20th Feb 2009 Mar Thomas Elavanal declared it as a full-fledged parish.
On 25th June 1998 SMC sisters opened their centre which helped the growth of our parish as they actively involved in all parish activities. They also run a crèche and nursery school.
The catechism classes for our children have started on16-06-1994. We have also the following pious associations like Pithruvedi, Mathrusangham, Altar Boys, Karunya Trust, KEY, Charismatic Prayer group etc.
Another important milestone of our parish was the addition of our own cemetery having 45 graves and 115 niches for the exclusive use of the parishioners. On 18-08-2010 we bought an adjacent plot of around 2200 sq.ft and our church was the restructured and opened on 14-12-2011 for the use of faithful.
