St THomas Syro Malabar Catholic Church

Vision & Mission

Office for Catechesis strives to help the young generation to pursue a lasting friendship with God, love the Church and to grow up as a passionate Catholic nurturing the inherent values and faith traditions unique to the Syro-Malabar Rite. 

The ministry of Catechesis holds an important place in the life and mission of the Church and in the faith formation of the People of God.  Therefore, the Church considers Catechesis as her great responsibility and undeniable right.  Jesus, before His ascension into heaven, entrusted to the Apostles the Mission to proclaim the Gospel to the entire creation and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that He had commended them (Mark :, Matthew 28:18).  Taking up this responsibility from the Lord, the Church has continued its Mission through the Ministry of Catechesis to hand down the faith to the generations with total fidelity to its content.
