Church Founder - Rev. Fr. Gregory Willam Vas

April 24th 2006 was a pivotal moment in the history of families residing in and around Paldane. On this day, the new Church dedicated to Blessed Teresa of Kolkata was inaugurated at Paldane and since then the Church has grown through the years to a congregation of around 330 families. It was the vision of Rev. Fr. Gregory Willam Vas that this Church was established to cater to the spiritual needs of the catholic community.

Simple and disciplined, Rev. Fr. G.W Vas strongly believes that it was merely God's own work that is being done through his hands. With an experience of over 28 years in the field of education, he is a man loved alike by his students, sub-ordinates, staff and parishioners. The parishioners of Paldane Church are ever grateful to Rev. Fr. G.W Vas for his hardwork, dedication and unconditional love that he has showered on the residents of this parish.
