HISTORY:   

This was once a part of Ferar and Hospet parishes.  People had to walk about 12-13 kms and cross the river in order to reach these churches.  Though the proposal to have a church here was made by parish priest of Hospet earlier, it was only in 1938 that a church was built by Fr John G. Pinto of Hospet (Hosabettu).  He had bought 4 acres of land from Mrs Matilda Pinto who had also donated an acre of land for the church.  He used to offer mass at Kuppepadav at the residence of Mrs Agnes Moras.  Gradually a church and presbytery were  built in 1958.  Fr Abel Coelho was sent to Kuppepadav as the resident chaplain.

Kuppepadav parish was established on August 21, 1958 with families from Loreto, Ferar and Hospet parishes.  Fr Abel Coelho (1958-1966) was the first parish priest here. Since this new parish had financial problems, 40 muras of geni land was transferred from Hospet to this parish.

Electrification of the presbytery and installation of electric water pump was done by Fr Frederic Lobo (1969-1976).  A belfry and a bus stand near the church were built by Fr John R. Noronha.  The first Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes was built by Fr Valerian Frank.   Fr Peter Lobo installed the statue of Sacred Heart of Jesus.   Fr John Walter Mendonca renovated the church and constructed the church hall which was inaugurated in 2001 by Bishop Bernard Moras of Belgaum, who was a parishioner of Kuppepadav.

Fr Assissi Rebello is the 8th parish priest of Kuppepadav.
