A brief history of the parish:

This new parish was bifurcated from Sacred Heart Church Fort, Ballari. Infant Jesus Church was started on 3rd Dec 1994 on the feast of St. Francis Xavier, in the Eastern side of the Ballari city in a rented house. There were 50 Christian families comprising 220 members. Fr. Denis Menezes was the first parish priest. The diocese bought a site in March 1997 and the newly built presbytery was blessed on May 3, 1998. The new church, constructed by Fr. Denis Menezes was blessed on May 20, 1999 by Bishop Joseph D’ Silva. The faith of the parishners is very much strengthened by the Basic Christian Communities. Fr. Anand Yemmi, the present Parish Priest with help of the parishners has newly built and inaugurated the Infant Jesus Grotto on Sept. 17, 2015.
