Mangaluru, 16 Apr 2024: St Joachim’s Church Kadaba, belongs to the Diocese of Mangalore, which is 85 kms. towards the South East of Mangalore.


Originally Kadaba was a part of Kokkada parish. It was separated in 1923. Fr Rosario D. Sequeiraa of Kokkada built a chapel here. Fr Lawrence Lobo who was the first resident Missionary here, built the presbytery and an orphanage in 1924. Kadaba became a parish on April 1, 1924.


Fr Basil Salvadore D’Souza, later the Bishop of Mangalore, built the existing church and the Boys’ Orphanage in 1957 which was later closed down. Fr Fredrick P.S. Moniz built the Grotto and belfry.



Fr Lawrence Lobo began St Joachim’s Hr Pry School in 1926 and Fr C. P. D’Souza rebuilt the school.


The Centenary of a Church in any Parish marks a very important milestone in its history. It is a time for celebration, not only for the Church itself but for the whole parish community. We owe a deep debt of gratitude to all those who toiled and served in this temple of God and its people.


We look back on our history and give thanks for the blessings bestowed upon the church dedicated to the St Joachim, Build on a small hillock surrounded with the greenery, by the humble, devote and committed faithful, whose sweat and blood raised each stone upon stone to build this mansion of Mighty God. It was therefore fitting on Wednesday, 17th April 2024 the centenary celebrations of St Joachim Church Kadaba culminated with a grand event marked with Eucharistic Procession.



The event commenced with a Eucharistic Celebration led by Rev. Fr Clifford Fernandes Parish priest of Cordel Church, kulshekar, presided over the ceremony. Rev. Fr Amith Prakash Rodrigues, the Parish Priest of St Rita’s church Panja , Our parish priest Rev Fr Paul Prakash DSouza graced this Historical occasion and followed by Eucharistic procession were we proclaimed Eucharistic Lord in our locality which marked great event in the history of Kadaba.


We returned to the church, where we placed the Blessed Sacrament on the altar for adoration. Most of the participants participated in the adoration. Rev. Fr Clifford Fernandes gave us the real meaning of Eucharist in our day today’s living. Many Priest, Religious Sister’s and locality people were present for this great event. A wonderful way to come together as the Body of Christ to celebrate who we are as a Eucharistic people in communion with one another.
