Seed of faith sown in our soil yesterday

Many Jesuite priests, Mill Hill Fathers, MEP Priests, Salesians and the Diocesan priests have worked over the years to build up the faith of the people of the diocese.

Faith took root in our soil through the work of the ardent missionaries who were zealously engaged in making Christ known through witnessing life, prayer, the Word of God and Catechesis.

They used to visit families and reach out to the needs of the people in love and joy. This lead to conversion and reception of the sacrament of initiation, marriage rectification and religious harmony.

Light and sound programmes, folk lore, slide shows, short plays etc were means for evangelization.

Later Christian films such as GnanaSoundari, KarunaMurthi, St. Antony, Our Lady of Velankanni , Infant Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth, The Passion of Christ were screened in the parishes, schools, boardings and hostels. This enabled people to know Christ and Christianity.

During Passion Week, light and sound programmes on the birth, passion and death of Christ were shown in the parishes to make known Christ. ‘Behold the Man’, ‘Good Shepherd’, ‘St Paul’ were some of the light and sound programmes shown through our diocese to the people.

Arul Chittu is one of the initiatives taken by INM province to circulate, stories, interesting biographies of saints and Bible quiz to make known our faith.

Modern technology is used to spread Christian faith.

Basic Christian communities are established to strengthen the faith of the Catholics.

To spread the Word of God the diocese organized dramas on the title of Jona, Job, The Prodigal son, The unforgiving steward, The good Samaritan etc.


celebration of the Bible weeks, various feasts, Good mornings, good nights, daily and Sunday Catechism, Value Education, Catechetical inspection and annual exams and Seminars on catechism of the catholic faith, documents of the Church are help to keep alive the faith of the students, staff and sisters.

Retreats, sacraments, seminars and workshops on the documents of the church, the word of God and training of the catechists help to spread Christian faith in the multi religious context of our locality.

Processions and pilgrimages help to keep alive the fire of faith in people

Young boys and girls joining religious life is a sign of faith among the laity.

The laity of our parish is involved in the socio pastoral activities and their generous contribution in the formation of self reliant parish is the sign of faith and commitment.

Challenges we encounter in living the faith in the community and the mission today

Dalit converts to Christianity are deprived of due constitutional rights, legal protection and various reservation facilities. They are twice discriminated community. In spite of deprival of the rights and reservation facilities for embracing Christianity by the Government of India, they remain in true faith and witness to the values of the Gospel.
