Parish History

At the end of the 17th Century, the Paris Foreign Mission Society, with its Headquarters at Pondicherry, took over the administration of the Mysore Mission. The civil districts of Shimoga, Chitradurga and Chikmagalur fell into the able hands of the Fathers of the Paris Foreign Mission Society. Already in 1830, Shimoga town had a small Church and a burial ground. It was constituted into a Parish in 1847.


In 1871 a new Church began to be constructed and it was completed and blessed on 4th April 1875 and was dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As the Catholic population increased, this Church was found to be too small and an extension was put up and inaugurated on 30th November 1976. On the erection of the Diocese of Shimoga, this Sacred Heart Church got the status of a Cathedral on 14th November 1988.


However, an entirely new Cathedral Church was started on 31st January 1994, completed and dedicated on 31st January 1998, by Most. Rev. Ignatius Pinto, the first Bishop of Shimoga.

Parish History

Sagar is a town located in Shimoga district in the Indian state of Karnataka. Located on the top of the Western Ghats in 14°10′N latitude and 75°05′E longitude,, it is known for its proximity to the historical places of Ikkeri and KeladiVaradamoola, the origin of the river Varada, is also near Sagar. Sagar derives its name from Sadashiva Sagara, which is a lake.  Sadashiva Nayaka, ruler of Keladi dynasty built this lake in between Keladi and Ikkeri. The lake Sadashiva Sagara is now called "Ganapathi Kere" (Ganapathi Lake).Being surrounded by the Western Ghats, Sagar attracts nature lovers.

 

Sagar is a vast Parish, the total extent of the Parish being 625 Sq. kms.  In about the year 1875, the Catholic population of Sagar was 101.  The poor but generous parishioners pooled all their resources and put up a very small chapel for worship near the Traveller’s Bungalow.  Subsequently a plot measuring 88 X 70 yards was granted by the government to the Christian community.  Dedicated to the patron of the Parish, St. Joseph, a modest Church was constructed in 1892. The Church building was a small structure 36` X 14`  with narrow verandahs  on both sides and it could accommodate only 200 people. In 1933, the Catholic population of the Parish had risen to 1100, and in 1945, the Catholic population was 1500.  In 1987, the Catholic population of the Parish rose to 2279.  Presently, there are 618 Catholic families residing in the Parish and the Catholic population is 2613.
