The Cathedral Parish, which was just a small substation for the first 200 years, witnessed a marvelous growth in the next 100 years! In 1890 Saveriarpalayam was first bifurcated, then Puliakulam in 1916 (though, from saveriarpalayam) and Kannampalayam in 1935 (though, again from Saveriarpalayam) Kattoor in 1935 and from it Gandhipuram in 1955 R.S.Puram in 1963 Podanur in 1904, which gave birth in its turn to Madukarai in 1953 Mettupalayam in 1947 Kovai pudur in 1987 Othkkalmandapam in 1976 Gandipuram in its turn had given birth to Rathinapuri in 1983 N.G.G.O colony in 1970 (from the Cathedral Parish) Goundapalayam in 1997 from N.G.G.O.
colony parish and also Jothipuram in 1990 and lastly Visuvasapuram in 2003 quite a prolific off-springs ! The prophetic hymn of thanks giving of Mary can also sing by this once insignificant substation of Karumathampatty”He has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant. Surely from now on all generations will call me blessed for the Mighty one has done great things for me” (Lk: 1:48-49).
