This church is located at Karimale, about 1.5kms distance away from Vamadapadav. It is in the Bantwal Taluk of South Karnataka, district of Karnataka state, India.

It was a need of the local Catholics faithful since it was difficult to travel a long distance to go to their parishes of Siddakatte, Agrar and Nirkan. Rev.Fr.Peter Serrao, parish priest of St.Patrick's church, Siddakatte  understood the difficulties of these people, told this matter to the Bishop of Mangalore, who gave permission to him to proceed with build a church at Karimale in Chennaithody village.

The new church building at Karimale, dedicated to the patronage of 'Infant Jesus of Prague' was completed and inaugurated and blessed on 28.04.1992. by the Bishop of Mangalore.

The devotionto the Infant Jesus has long been a tradition of the Catholic Church. This devotion is a veneration of Jesus sacred Childhood. Many saints have a very strong devotion to the Divine Child, notably St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua and St. Theresa of Avila.

Many graces, blessings, favors and miraculous healing have been received by many who petitioned before the Infant Jesus.
