Short History: The parish was spread out in three talukas of Kolhapur, viz. Bhudargad, Kagal, and Radhanagri in a radius of about 80 kms. The parish was known as “ Sat Vaddeanchi Igroz” (the Parish of seven villages). Catholics migrated from Bardez i.e. the northern part of Goa around 350 years ago. This parish was established as a full-fledged parish from 1949 and the chapel of Gauthan was declared  as the main Church for all the seven Mass centres. Prior to the creation of the parish, he centre belonged to the parishes of Ajra and Bhironda. In 1992 the Parish of Gauthan was entrusted to the Missionaries of St. Francis De Sales. In 2003 Murgud and Bachni became independent parishes and now Gauthan has only four sub-centres with its boundary up to Gargoti.
