Birth of St.Joseph's Church

St. Joseph's Church
, Vepery, Chennai - 7 was born on 19th March 1912. Thanks to the efforts of the visionary Rev. Fr.J.Meyer S.S.J., St. Joseph's Church was planned.

He found no better place than the vast compound where the New Town Catholic Boys' School on Vepery Hight Road was situated. He made up his mind to build the church there and entrusted its construction to Messrs, Enrigh and T.Pereira,  Engineer and Architect respectively.

Need to celebrate the Centenary Year:

The Church is the place of God's presence that reveals divine to us and it is ther we pray and get Gog's forgiveness, blessings, favours, graces etc., Above all we celebrate the 100th year for celebrating holy Mass in that Church for past 100 years. So lng w neglected such nniversries such s Silver, Golden, Diamond, Platinum. At lease for the centenary year, why don't we thank God for his presence and guidance in this place of worship for past 100 years.

The Foundation Stone was blessed by Most Rev. Dr.Joseph Coln,the Archbishop of Madras on 5th October 1906 during the time of Mill Hill Mission, Rev. Fr.J Meyer SSJ was a Parish Priest of St Andrews Church, Choolai, Chennai 600 112. Messrs, Enright & T.Pereiera the engineer and Architect had undertken the construction of the church. The Foundation Stone that we have still on the right side of the Church written in latin as follows:
