Announcements & Activities for 21.09.2014 & 28.09.2014


(For more information, please contact our Presbyters Rev. K.P. Mohan Das, Mob. No. 9446330756 or Rev. R. Shibu, Mob. No. 9495706850)



1. Odisha Mission Field Visit: The 14 member team from our parish headed by Rev. R. Shibu, Associate Vicar, visited Odisha Mission Field and returned to Kattakada on 17.09.2014. They shared their experiences in the mission field during the Sunday Service on 21.09.2014. It was intimated by Rev. R. Shibu that the village life in Odisha is economically self-reliant. But they still undergo various kinds of exploitations due to the lingering caste system. They accept the Gospel with much enthusiasm.
The Mission Field urgently needs some furniture like chairs and table. A two wheeler is needed for commutation between various centres in the Misison Field, as the journey from one village to the nearest one would take nearly 300 KM and public transport facilities are rare. Also, the Centre is working on a rented land. Funds are needed to meet all these requirements. Anybody interested in helping the Odisha Mission Field may contact our Presbyters.


2. Poor Fund Month Concluded: The Poor Fund Month has been observed from 31.08.2014 to 28.09.2014 with a view to augment the permanent fund being used for humanitarian purposes.
