The History of the HouseThe Ferragunj Parish, dedicated to St. Joseph, was created in 1996. Following the visit by the provincial team in 1996, the Salesians undertook parish work, set up a technical school and the Service of Youth Direction at the diocesan level. Frs. Maria Arulraj and Patrick Alphonse came in 1997 and on 16th August 1998, the Ferrargunj Parish was handed over to the Salesians. Gradually the Salesians branched into social work and organised the people into Self Help Groups. The parish is 17.5kms away from Don Bosco Lalpahad. From a single parish it has now grown to encompass within it 16 villages around.
