Chodavaram, a substation of Madugula Parish, was raised to a Parish on 4th June 1995 by our Archbishop and handed over to the Claritians. After taking over the Parish, the Claritian Missionaries are leading the mission towards its full growth. Various village chapels in the Parish are remodeled and in some places land is purchased in view of putting up chapels. Claret House, the Presbytery has come up in the recent past which is also the centre of different activities that are taken up by the mission to cater to the spiritual needs of the faithful. With an average of 30 conversions in a year the mission is developing itself in various ways.
