→ Srisailamatha Shrine, Srisailam

Srisailam was earlier under Donakonda Parish. There were 3 Catholic families who were working as stone cutters. They were originally from Rajamupalli which belonged to Donakonda at that time. The Parish Priest of Donakonda used to go there to celebrate the mass twice or thrice a year. On August 15, 1977 the new Srisailamatha Mission was opened by Most Rev. Dr. Joseph Rajappa. The first Parish Priest was Fr. John Xavier. Fr. Louis Rego built the first presbytery there. Fr. Francis D’Cruz built the Srisailamatha and briefly in 1979. The present presbytery was built by Fr. Joseph Palladan and completed by Fr. Joseph Vetticad. The present church of Srisailamatha was built by Fr. G. Shoureddy in 2000.
