St. Joseph’s Church Dolamara
 
St. Joseph’s parish Dolamara was established in the year 1986. Fr. Thomas Mangalassery was the first parish priest. He had to face lot of struggles in the initial stage. Being far away from the main town and poor transportation made his efforts tough to bring up the centre. The establishment of Catholic mission has made great impact on the people living in this locality which was so backward. The Karbis, the Adivasis and the Nepalis are the main group of people living in the area.

The establishment of St. Joseph’s school in the same year added to the progress and development of the locality. Clarist Franciscan Missionary Sisters of the Most Blessed Sacrament joined the mission in the 1987. Today the parish has 13 Catholic villages with a Catholic population of 1500.
