St. John's Church Travel Map

St. John's Church, located at the Mall Road, is a Roman Catholic Church established in 1936 under the supervision of Agra Diocese. The construction of this church was completed in the year 1937. In 1947, after the British left India, Agra Diocese could no longer administer this church due to the paucity of priests. Since then, this wonderful church has been neglected and disused, and was eventually handed over to the Government of India in 1951.In 1977, Rev. Gratian Mundadan wished to start a new mission station at Lansdowne and entrusted the responsibility to Fr. John Chakkanattu. Fr. John worked with great zeal and took up the matter to highest authorities to use the church again. It was in 1980, that the then Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, granted permission to handover the church to the rightful owners.On 26th April 1980, the property of the church was leased to the Diocese of Bijnor and its possession was transferred on 29th November 1980. The re-erected St. John's Catholic Church was blessed by Rt. Rev. Dr. Paulinus Jeerakath CMI, Bishop of Jagdalpur on 28th April 1983. Since then, daily prayers are being offered at the church, which is open to believers and non-believers of all faith.
