Rev.Fr.Abel Cohello, serving as assistant Parish Priest of Milagres church in Mangalore was appointed as the first Parish Priest of Kuppepadavu Church. Being very young and with his little experience he had that great responsibility on him to bring up this newly formed Parish which was still in the stage of infancy. In between all the shortcomings and difficulties of finance he was able to sucessfuly accomplish the task of setting up the roof of the church and presbytery(the house of the Parish Priest). He availed financial support to those families who had financial difficulties. His effort in rendering catechism of the Church to our ancestors is truly appreciable. We pray that almighty God grant him eternal rest.
