Welcome to the Official Website of CSI Kattakada

A parish is the epitome and symbol of Christian love and fellowship. It was the divine will to found this parish in the heart of a small town which is growing rapidly. Our church and the laity could exercise a great influence on all shades of life in the society we live. The present generation strives hard to uphold this heritage and hand it over to the posterity.    

The CSI Parish in Kattakada was established in 1846 by the pioneering missionary Rev. John Cox.  It is one of the biggest parishes in South Kerala Diocese with more than 650 families in its fold. 

    Over the years our Parish has served the society in many meaningful ways and has been a powerful instrument in social and educational development

1. Visit of Rev. Dr. D.J. Ajith Kumar: Rev. Dr. D.J. Ajith Kumar (Church of North India(CNI), Fulbani Diocese) has visited our parish church during the Sunday Service on 04.01.2015. A member of our parish and the founder of the Nagpur-based Grace Ministry of India, it was his first visit after having ordained a priest by the CNI. He is presently working as the Convener of the Stewardship Committee, Fulbani Diocese of the CNI. 
 During the sermon, he has explained that Fulbani in Orissa is the same as Kandamal, where a religious oppression occurred in 2008-2010. About 36 believers were killed, 105 church buildings were destroyed to the foundation and tens of thousands of Christians fled to the nearby forests for their lives. Many of them are yet to return to their homes. The Fulbani Diocese has more than 560 parish churches, with the believers dating their ancestry to more than 120 years ago, when the British Missionaries worked in the area. However, there are only 4 Presbyters who are qualified in Theology. Some 120 church workers have undergone basic theological training. The rest of the churches are being run by laymen workers. The monthly salary of the most senior Presbyter is as low as Rs. 2500 ($40). The people are very poor and illiterate with very low resources.
 During the last few months a great effort has been made to renovate the church buildings and other institutions with the liberal aid of the people from across the globe, especially, Kerala. A new building is being constructed for the Cathedral Church at Kandamal. Also, an building constructed by the British Missionaries is being renovated. This will be used as a theological training institution. He has expressed the hope that the new initiative may help bring in schools and hospitals in the region, which would changes the lives of the people.
Anybody willing to help the Fulbani Diocese may please contact our Presbyters.
