Welcome to St. Peter Catholic Church. I am Fr. Paul Vazhapilly, Administrator for St. Peter Claver and Sacred Heart Parishes.

A little about me…I was born January 6, 1970, in Karnataka State, India, and hold a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in arts from my secular education. My academic journey in priesthood includes a Bachelor of Philosophy, a Bachelor of Theology, and a minor in Seminary Formation.

Since my ordination on April 1, 1996, I have been dedicated to serving the Church in various capacities. My roles have ranged from assistant parish priest to parish priest (vicar), director, procurator, and chancellor.
I come from a devout Catholic family deeply rooted in faith. Notably, one of my siblings serves as a parish trustee, while two sisters have dedicated their lives to religious vocation as nuns.
I am fluent in English, Malayalam, and Kannada. My email address is I invite you to join us to celebrate the Eucharist.
