                                        Rev.Fr.S.Selvarayar,

                                         St.Ignatius Church,

                                        Kokkudi Post,

                                        Kallagam Via,

                                        Perambalur District

                                       Tamil Nadu-621653.

  The Histoty of kokkudi parish tracd back 294 years.It has tremendous History of its
place.In the begining,it was the substation of Vadugarpet parish.Which has been continued
for long period of time.The patron of this parish shows that in its initial stage the Jesuits
were working here.There were lots and more priests worked for the people in various
levels.hence they are traditional catholics too.They specically strengthed the faith of these
poor Christians and at the same time they lived an exemplary life.

 The Kokkudi parish is located 47km east of Trichy City on the way to chidhamparam.The
beauties of nature surround the village.The lakes are on the east and west,and with beautiful
greenaries of agricultural field on the north and the south.

 The parish of Kokkudi was erected in 1879.There were two groups,protestants were onr
group and other was Catholics.who fought for the place and the church.The case was field
in the court.In Trichy court the judgement was favoured to the pathithars.But the Catholics
appealed to high court in Madras.There the court finally decided that the land and the
church belonged to the catholics message.They graudually increased in number.At preesnt
the catholic population is 3500.

 The people of this kokkudi parish celebrate many festivals like christmas,New
Year,Easter,street patron feasts,abd feast of vanathu Anthoniyar athe field patron.St.Ignatius
of Loyala is the patron of this parish.The church celebrates its festival on july 31st every
year.
 The patron of this parish is St.Ignatius of Loyala.This is the hope that St.Francis Xaviers
mission might have been reached here or one of his followers might have worked here.It is
realy a mission station.Even St.Constantine besche worked near by villages in the vinceyard
of lord.He could have come here to preach gospel and teach catechism.All these witness
that they are traditional Christians.In 1970 the old church was demonlished and a new
church was built with asbestos.The new church was completed and bleased by Most
Rev.Paul Arulsamy on 29.07.1984.

At present Rev.Fr.S Selvarayar is the parish priest of kokkudi parish in the Diocese of
kumbokonam.He is the parish priest and the correspondent of the school.Though he has
completed 30 years of priestly life still he is active;a good friend to the parishioners and he
wants to do something for the people and for the children.The Teachers are also more
cooperative with the parish priest in developing the students both mentally and physically
for their better future.At last but not least,the parish priest Rev.Fr.S.Selvarayar brings peace
and unity among the people and also encourages them specially the pious associations,
parish council and also encourages them specially the pious associations,parish council and
St.Vincent de Paul Society in order to bring lots and more development to the parishioners.

Brief History

The Cathaloic Mission was started at Kulumur in the rear 1940 by late Fr.Ignatius and
Fr.A.Rayappan,during the tenure of late Mgr.Peter Francis the then Bishop f Kumbakonam
,undeterred by the utter lack of even basic conveniences and overwhelmed by zeal for
soule,the undaunted missionaries braved all the barries to spared the word of god at
kulumur and its vicinities.The grace of god was not wanting.The word of god apread so
steady among those who were receptives that in subsequent years some more mission
stations were established to facilitateemission work.

The Missionmaries of yester years felt the vital need education as a sine qua tool to civilise
the rank and whose life style was at very low ebb for want of education.A primary school
emerged among the most reluctant students who had to be wooed to attend classes .the
sacrifice the missionaries made,over the years,had not been vain.The primary school was
upgraded into middle school in the year 1954.In the year 1995 it was made Hr.Sec
School.Education had achieved a phenomical social in and around kulumur.The life of the
people in general,hitherto plunged in lowest economic is poised to see the dawn of the day.

The Mission has not come to end.It is to be carried out vigonously for all the days to come
through the instrumentally of education and other social works.
