Bishop's Message

Devotion to Rosary was started in the year 1208 in the Church of Prouille. The claim of place and time are most strongly supported by the tradition of the Dominican order.

V. Rev. Fr. R. D. E. Jerome


The Shrine of Our Lady of Holy Rosary is situated 27 Kilometers from the town of Coimbatore in a quasi village called Karumathampatti, in the Diocese of Coimbatore.

History of the Church of Our Lady of Rosary

History says that as early as 1640, the church of Karumathampatti, dedicated to Our Lady of Holy Rosary, became a place of pilgrimage. There were people of different communities residing in the area of Karumathampatti. Chettiars, also known as Shedders, were weavers and cloth merchants by profession. Many worked on hand looms at home. They formed an important part of the Catholic Community of the Diocese. Many Shedders embraced Christianity as early as 1662 in the Karumathampatti mission. French missionaries Fr. Noguera and Fr. Pereira were in charge of the Karumathampatti district in 1684.
