Fr Chinnappa Thomas in AP
Fr Chinnappa Thomas to-date (March 26, 2012) has spent 43 years in Andhra Pradesh and that too in just five houses: Brahmanakoduru (5 years), Mangalagiri, Punganur, Sodum and presently in his first year at Kondadaba. He was the pioneer of Don Bosco Premnivas, Mangalagiri, the only house in the whole of the Salesian congregation catering to physically challenged children. At Brahmanakoduru, from where the Salesians later shifted to Ponnur, Fr Thomas was sent as a helper to Fr V.T. John, in the place of Fr Chacko Thattil.
