At Our Lady of Lourdes Church Salesians cater to the pastoral needs of the Catholic Community
The parish church is situated in Basavanapura-Seegehally, on the outskirts of Bangalore city. It consists of the whole of the Hoskote Taluk with over 100 villages and a small portion of the Bangalore South Taluk. Most of the people are from the backward communities and are daily-wage-earners. The Catholic population is spread out in 16 villages. Hailing from the neighbouring State of Andhra Pradesh, they belonged originally to St. Antony’s parish, Thambuchettipalaya, near Kristu Jyoti College. The centre has about 150 families residing mostly in the twin villages of Basavanapura and Seegehally. The others are scattered in Swathanthranagar, R.M.S Colony, Chikkabasavanapura and Priyankanagar .
The first chrch in this centre was built in 1969. It was rebuilt in 1973. On July 10, 1988, in the centenary year of Don Bosco’s death, this centre was given the status of an independent mission and permanently handed over to the Salesians. The new parish church was built and inaugurated during the feast of Our Lady Lordes in 1999. In February 2001, Don Bosco Computer Centre, Library and Youth Centre were inaugurated.
