Overview


When we turn the pages of the history of Madras Catholic Directory dating back to 1851 , we learn that there were eight English medium Schools which were imparting free education for boys and girls separately. The schools run for the boys were located at Armanian Street, Royapuram , New Town, St. Thomas Mount and Pallavaram. The other three schools for the girls were at Maclean Street, St. Thomas mount and Pallavaram. Goiong by history, the present St. Joseph's Anglo-Indian Boys' School was once called ‘New Town Catholic School'. Rev. Fr. Felise and Italian capuchin priest was the pioneer, who purchased nearly 70,554 Sq.ft. of land on 11th June 1825. he built St. Andrew's church at Kalathiappa Street, which was the first church in Vepery and thus entire making Vepery was a strong Roman Catholic centre.

Additional Details

Initially the New Town Catholic School was under the administration of St. Andrew's Church. Later, in 1930 St. Joseph's Church was constructed at the school campus and it was made a Parish and the school come under the management of St. Joseph's Church. On 20th August 1897, under the Director of Public Instruction , No. 9981 , the school was upgraded as high school. Rev. Fr. Meyer SSJ(Mill Hill Father) was appointed as Parish Priest of St. Andrew's Church and also incharge of the school. Owing to the rapid growth of the catholic population, Rev. Fr. Meyer SSJ was driven by sheer necessity to raise a new church in the school premise to cater to the spiritual needs of the people.
