Tembipada, a "slope town" area, is arranged in the focal suburb, at Bhandup, Mumbai. It was bifurcated from the blessed trinity ward, Powai, in the year 1989. This ward is overseen by the favored ceremony Fathers since 1993. It takes into account 3500 and odd solid and customary catholics. An explanatory separation of this quality is as per the following: Tamil speaking Catholics are 85% and Konkani speaking Catholics, who hail from Mangalore, shape the rest.
Depending on the accessible sources, one may figure that the supposed whole 'church arrives' has been in control of catholic network over a time of 55-60 years. What is to be told as boisterous as conceivable is the manner by which this had its start and how it developed and created from solidarity to solidarity to the dimension of a free area.
Everything started with a little covered shed made up of leaves and sticks under a mango tree on these Bhandup slopes with photos of our woman and st. Anthony settled in the tree to watch the long stretch of the rosary and summon the gift and assurance of middle people.Why under a mango tree? The territory around the mango tree must have been little plain, with harsh stone and little rocks, which could then serve them as a gathering place, where the Tamil pilgrims could maybe assemble to have their day by day rosary and different petitions.It Was Very Interesting to Listen to the portrayal of how that year (1953) Christmas was observed: An old den set was gathered from the neighboring wards in the city in the year 1953. What's more, around the same time, as Mr. Gaspar puts on his review, they acquired a little statue of St. Anthony from the sum they understood from the Christmas festivity and chose to commit the alleged house of prayer to St. Anthony in the year 1956.At this phase of settling down, perhaps, one ought not neglect to envision the sort of scene of the place: a territory of this sort of place may have been an insufficient wilderness and a frightening ravine in sight. Sure, they needed to depend on the otherworldly powers to live in such a place where nothing was in the offing to live securely. Thus, the decision of St. Anthony of Padua as their benefactor holy person.
A house of prayer was enduring a covered rooftop without dividers around. The time of such occasion is between the times of 1954-1956. Some senior individuals will recollect even today how and where the main church at some point was, in particular, not in the east-west bearing, as the present structure stands today, yet it was in the north-south heading radiating at the eastern end of the involved space of that time.After three years (1958) a similar shed with the covered rooftop must be expelled to give path for a superior shed with tin sheets, yet at the same time without legitimate dividers around the house of prayer however insignificant covered sheet filling the need.
In 1969-1970 the board of trustees chose to make the house of prayer minimal greater to oblige the enduring increment of the catholic families around Tembipada. This church was fitted with manglaore tiles and wooden twirly doors and bar with stronger dividers made up of mud engine and harsh mortar. It's implied that a structure of this thoughtful required standard support, which this sanctuary of 1969 and 1970 needed.
