The History of the House

The parish of Our Lady of Victories was born in 1840 and entrusted to the Salesian care in 1930. Housing 382 families now the Catholics are distributed over Jolarpet, Pudhur, Veppampet and Yellagiri Hills. With many educational institutes in the locality (2 B.Ed colleges, 2 Arts Colleges, 2 Polytechnics, 1 Engineering college & a teacher training college), the target group of the Salesian apostolate, remains the poor and backward class of the society. Dominated by the railway centred economy of the Jolarpet Junction, the locale is also popular for dependence on agriculture, manufacturing of beedi & incense sticks, carpentry work, dhobis, painters, masonry work, quarry work and leather tanning as well. The parish and its infrastructure owe its existence to Fr. Francis Guezou SDB, the French missionary who was posted here as parish priest. He helped to build it up and eventually went on to found and build the Yellagiri mission, culminating in his death.
