This parish has 150 families and also one substation under its jurisdiction. The parish has 12 units. The parish is dedicated to Sacred Heart of Jesus and the feast is celebrated on April 30 every year. The catholic faith is nurtured and nourished through catechism for the children, pious associations for the youth, women and men, daily Holy Mass, frequent unit prayers and family visits etc. The F.C.C sisters' community situated 4kms away from the parish, render their valuable service in the field of catechism.
