Background Information

The Archbishop of Bombay Late Rt. Rev. Simon Pimenta presented the Pallottine Fathers the pastoral care of “Christ the King Mass- Centre”, as they called it then at Rasayani in 1998. In earlier times the Jesuits had ministered to the faithful at Rasayani. On November 22, 1998 at the feast of Christ the King, the Mass-Centre was acknowledged and accredited a self-regulating parish.

Fr. Anthony Correia was appointed the first priest-in-charge. The second priest-in-charge was Late Fr. Gnanapragasam who worked and died in the same parish. The third priest-in-charge was Fr.Thomas D’souza. The present Priest-in-charge is Fr. Anto Vijayan.

The foundation stone for Christ the King Church was laid by Rt. Rev. Oswald Gracias then Auxiliary Bishop of Archdiocese of Bombay on 21-11-1999.
