Shrine Chapel

Due to the increase in the number of devotees flooding to visit the Shrine of Our Lady, the space that was available for the devotees to stand and pray was found to be very congested.  At this juncture, the then Parish Priest, Msgr. T. Jabamalai constructed a hall like structure facing east and placed the statue of Our Lady in a prominent place   This enabled thousands of devotees to see her without any hindrance and pray to her more devotedly. The statue of Infant Jesus was placed where the Our Lady’s statue remained originally.
