It is a great blessing to the people of Kandampalayam. The Claretian Missionaries are taking new initiatives to help the poor people in Kunnamalai parish. Within a year, many initiatives were taken to help the people spiritually and socially. One of them was, building houses for the poor parishioners.
Most Rev. Dr. A. Rayappan, the bishop of Salem Diocese inaugurated solemnly the newly built five houses at Kandaampalayam in the presence of Rev. Fr. Jacob, the procurator, Rev. Fr. Michael Francis CMF, the prefect of apostolate and 8 Vicariate Fathers. The project was donated by Josettes Smile Foundation – ICHEC, Belgium.
