Infant Jesus Church: Vivek Nagar –Christian

A place happen lots of miracles. prayers are never failed. Visit once or, ask the community to pray. all group will pray for you!
The Church has a long history of sacrifice and devotion from the time it was first conceived by Fr Paul Kinatukara in the sixties. In April 1970, the foundation was laid by Rev.Dr.Lourduswamy, the then Archbishop of Bangalore, with absolutely nothing to get started.It was Fr. L. Peter who set out on a daunting mission to establish the church on a firm footing. Persisting faith and courage prevailed and finally the present church was opened in the year 1979, despite gruelling obstacles. The most noticeable feature of the church is the secular nature of the devotees.
The Infant Jesus Church was recently rebuilt making it the biggest church in Karnataka. The newly built Church, a popular pilgrimage centre at Viveknagar in Bangalore was on inaugurated by Dr Bernard Moras, Archbishop of Bangalore on June 10, 2005.
Representative of the Vatican in India Dr Pedro Lopez Quintana dedicated the new church at a Eucharistic celebration.
In terms of accommodating the number of people, this is the largest church in Karnataka. With 312 benches, it can seat about 3,500 persons inside the worship hall and another 5,000 people in the open podium area.
On January 14th, 2002 The Foundation stone for the new Infant Jesus Church was laid by his Grace, Rev. Fr. Dr. Ignatius Pinto, and the Archbishop of Bangalore.
