140 years ago Catholicity was implanted at Nedungulam and the first place of worship was a thatched hut with a crucifix. In 1920 a tiled roof was put up and the Church was dedicated to Christ the Redeemer. In 1979 a presbytery was built by Rev. Fr. Cruz Antony. Nedungulam was a substation Somanathaperi for a long period and it became a separate parish in 1984. In 1986 the new Church was built when Rev. Fr. Irudaya Raja was the parish priest. After Nedungulam became a separate parish, a new Church was built in one of the substations called ‘Mettukudiyiruppu’. Rev. Fr. U.
