1. The Protest Continues: The protest over the attack on the priests of our parish continues un-abated due to the lack of interest on the part of the police authorities to bring all culprits to book. Rt. Rev. A. Dharmaraj Rassalam, Bishop, CSI, South Kerala Diocese (SKD) visited Rev. K.P. Mohan Das, Chairman, CSI Kattakada Parish District and Rev. R. Shibu, Asst. Vicar in our parish on 1st December, 2014. Talking on the occasion, he has stated that the attempt to destroy the Christian institutions is deplorable. If anybody thinks that the management of Christian College, Kattakada can be brought under pressure by attacking the priests, it would remain just an illusion.
A petition has moved  with the Hon’ble Home Minister of Kerala on 2nd December by the Political Affairs Committee, to arrest all those who are involved in the attack. It has been pointed out that approximately 30 persons have been involved in the attack on 27th November, but the case has been registered only against 8 of them and only 4 of them have been arrested so far.
Raising the issue, more than 500 priests belonging to the CSI, SKD have marched to the Kerala Legislative Assembly on 5th December.
