6. Infant Jesus Friary, Vallam, Chenglepet (Chengelpet Diocese) - 2000

Founded in June 2000. Vallam was a substation of Chengelpet town parish. It was separated and given to us. There are 350 catholic families with 8 substations. The population is around 1400. It is an extension area. We run a children’s Home. We opened the Infant Jesus Friary in April 2002. We have ample scope for spiritual ministry besides parish administration.
