“Don't let any one look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
1 Timothy 4:12
We have a very vibrant youth ministry in the church which focuses
on the the spiritual and psychological growth of the young men and
women of the syro-malabar community.
The group conducts youth meeting on 2nd Sunday of every month
after the 10'o clock mass, under the guidance of Rev. Vicar Fr. Jose
Thottakara, Fr. Shinto, Bro. Ligin, Bro. Nithin and Sr. Roja to
disucss activities and schedule future programmes.
This youth fellowship is designed to provide a wholesome Christian
atmosphere to enrich the youth life through fun, praise and worship.
It provides a platform for the youth members to make friends and
work together as a team to plan and carry out our mission’s goals
and make a difference in others life through outreach projects. It
provides support to grow in catholic faith and understand the history,
tradition, culture and values on which our foundation was built on.

This group aims at facilitating personal prayer through group gatherings. Members of the Parish and other lay people come together to
praise and worship the Lord once in a wekk. Members engage in prayer, song, reading the Sacred Scripture and in organizing spiritual
programmes.
Members also share their experiences about their prayer life built on personal prayer, daily scripture reading, meditation and
contemplation.
There are three prayer groups meeting at different timing on Wednesdays.
1. Parish Members : This group meets from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM on Wednesdays in the Church.
2. Jesus Youth : This group comprises of young employees from Infopark and the neighbourhood. They meet from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
every Wednesday in the Church.
3. Employees from Kakkanad: This group meets from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM every Wednesday in the Church.
On Saturdays from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM there is an intercessory prayer group meeting under the leadership of Dr. Appu Cyriac.
The Altar Servers are part of an extremely important ministry at our Parish
because Altar Servers assist the priest in setting the tone of the Mass and in
leading the congregation in worship. Altar Servers do this by their own
personal commitment to the Parish, by their reverent behaviour in the
sanctuary (the area surrounding the Altar), and by the respectful and
competent execution of their duties.
Once fully trained, Altar Servers are placed on a schedule and every effort is
made to ensure that all those who participate in the ministry get equal
opportunity to serve at the Mass of their choosing. It is very important to the
well-being of the ministry that Altar Servers honour their commitment by
showing up for their scheduled times to serve.
If interested in becoming an Altar Server, please contact the parish office.

Choir is one of the most integral part of our liturgy and the parish community. The
service of our choir is inspirational and a blessing for our worship services. The choir
actively participates in all the worship services and special services. The Sunday
choir is such that the child singers are also encouraged and equally participated
along with the adults. Singing and praying together not only helps the members of
the church to feel unified, but also to feel spiritually closer to God.
