Holy Family Catholic Church
was established in 1896 by Winkley. This church is located at Moulana Azad Road, Srinagar. Almost 50 people visit the church weekly. Roy Mathews is the priest-in-charge of the Holy Family Catholic Church
. It is a Roman Catholic Church. There are two main churches for the minority including this one and the Saint's protestant church.
The belfry of the Holy Family Catholic Church had got destroyed due to a massive fire in 1967. After so many years, a Kashmir Christian family donated a bell to the church in 2017. That event took place in an interfaith ceremony, where the clergymen of all the religions gathered to ring the new bell in past 50 years.
You can visit the church at any time of the year but only during the daytime. The
