A Brief History of
Our Lady of Fatima Forane Church, Jasola-Okhla

Okhla is one of the biggest Syro-Malabar Communities in Delhi with more than 3500 faithful.

Seby left for Brazil for mission work in February 2005, Fr. Kuruvila Marottickal took over from him as priest in charge.The Mass Centre was raised to a Personal Parish on June 15, 2005 by His Grace Archbishop Vincent Concessao and Fr. Kuruvila Marottickal was appointed Parish Priest. Then Fr.Varghese Manickathan, and Fr. Dominic Kachappilly served as assistant parish priests and presently Fr.Vakkachan Kumpail serves the office of assistant parish priest.
