Rev. Fr. Johnson Raj J (Rector)

Welcome to Sokkankudieruppu Athisaya Manal Matha Shrine

Jesus wants his mother to be glorified by people everywhere in the world. That is why there are so many Basilicas, shrines and churches built for Our Lady. One shrine among them is Sokkankudieruppu Athisaya Manal Matha Shrine.

We come to know from history note of Rev. Fr. Denis Kusen that this shrine was constructed even before the time when St. Francis Xavier came to India. It is significant that St. Francis Xavier restored a young man to life during his visit to this shrine.

Once upon a time this shrine was covered by Red sands due to a curse of a poor widow. Then it was excavated from the ground by People of Sokkankudieruppu in 1798. Now it celebrates its 216th anniversary of excavation.
