St. Thomas Church, Parli

thomas_parliBrief History : The new parish at Parli was a substation of St. Francis of Assisi Parish, Kundah. It was on 21st June 1987 that Parli was divided from Kundah and made a separate parish. Fr. Roland Lefevre became the first parish priest of St. Thomas Church, Parli, while Mulli was his residence. The place is mostly inhabited by the tribes called Irulas. The FMM sisters by their social and medical service brought some of them to the Christian faith. A dispensary was opened in 1968 at Mulli to render medical service mainly to the Irulas. Later it grew into a small hospital managed by the F.M.M. Sisters.
