On 29th March 1939, evening around 6.30 pm, Mary appeared on a hill near to the church. She appeared in the middle of bright white light. She wore a veil and looked towards the church and worshiped with folded hands. A water fall was falling down from her feet. Six young people (Gnana Athikkam, S.P.John, M.G.Thomas, D.Thasan, R.Thasan, M.A.Thasan) saw that apparition. They saw that apparition for few seconds and after that it disappeared. Next day morning they went to the apparition hill and found a pair of human foot print on the rock at the apparition site. They marked the foot print and informed that apparition to parish priest Rev. Father Marianoos, school head master Laxmana Iyer and the village people. Rev. Father Marianoos and the people were uncertain about that apparition.
It was a drought time and for 13 years there was no rain in the arid zone Kallikulam.
The school head master told them that he would believe that apparition only if he saw the waterfall on the hill. That day after noon around 3 pm there was a heavy rainfall for one and half an hour time in and around of Kallikulam.
A waterfall formed on the hill top at the apparition site. After that signs, they believed the apparition, and setup a Pandal (temporary structure) with coconut leaves on the apparition site....but many years earlier, dreams of a woman with a child resulted in a local church being built...
