BALLARI, DEC. 6: ¬†Newly built presbytery was blessed and inaugurated¬† in presence of a large gathering of Priests, Religious, People and children by Bishop Henry D’Souza at Chikkahesaru, in Raichur district on Dec. 6.

While appreciating the hard work put into by local parish priest Fr. Antony Fernandes, the Bishop thanked him for his contribution to establishing Chikkahesaruru   mission and building up the community.

It was also the first annual day for the newly started St. Antony School, Chikkahesarur.

According to 2011 censes Chikkahesarur has only 37.11% literacy level against 75.36% in the Karnataka State.
