Our parish community has a youth association in order to help themselves in making their faith life vibrant and active. The youth come from different cultures, languages, regions of India. They actively participate in liturgical and other activities of the parish.
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
In 1959 Mount St Joseph, the new novitiate of the Karnataka Jesuits was inaugurated in KalenaAgrahra, on Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore. Living next door to MSJ was a village of 300 souls, of whom only 60 were Catholics. They were said to be the descendants of a single progenitor who settle down here form Chikkakammanahalli. They used to go to chikkakammanahalli for mass through ragi fields and it was very difficult in rainy season.
In the face of Corona virus threat the parish community is advised to take precautionary measures. We have communicated already through our social media.
