23. Saint Joseph’s Parish, Nyokum Lapang
 
PATRON: SAINT JOSEPH

In 1986 a group of Boys put up this church and placed it under the patronage of Our Lady and called it St. Mary’s Church. Over the years a better church was constructed at the site. Fr. C.C. Jose SDB was the Parish Priest.  This was the first Church to be established in the capital area. In February 2008 the site of St. Mary’s Church was shifted to a more prominent part of the town. St. Mary’s Church Nyokum Lapang then functioned as a sub station.   On October 24, 2010, taking into consideration the historical importance of this Church at Nyokum Lapang, it was again erected as a parish with St. Joseph as the Patron.  Fr. Tomy Edasseryparampil CMF  was appointed as the Parish Priest. On March 18, 2012 the St. Joseph’s Church was declared as the Cathedral Church of the diocese of Itanagar.
