1.  HMS Sunday: The foundation Day of the Home Missionary Society has been observed on 15.03.2015 in all parish churches under the CSI, South Kerala Diocese. Shri. Stanley John, Secretary, HMS has visited our parish and delivered the key-note-address during the Sunday service.
The HMS was founded on 15.03.1900 as an auxiliary organisation of the London Missionary Society, to accelerate the missionary activities by the local Christians. At present, the HMS functions in the geographical jurisdiction of the SKD, while the Board for Mission concentrates outside this area. The newly built churches by this organization are being handed over to the SKD, as and when they acquire the self-supporting capacity. The volunteers do not receive any kind of remuneration for their activities. 
Shri. Stanley John has stated that the HMS faces difficulty due to acute shortage of funds, because the land dealings in two places are to be settled at the earliest. One of these places is Thattazhikonam near Amaravila in Neyyattinkara, where the local males are addicted to liquor. Their children and other family members evince keen interest in the activities of the church, as they see a ray of hope for their future. The second place is Kulasekharam near Vellaikadavu in Trivandrum.
Anybody interested to help the HMS may contact our Presbyters in the mobile numbers mentioned above.

2. Vestment Ceremony: The vestment will be given to some Evangelists serving as church workers under the SKD on 22.02.2015 at 3.00 PM. The ceremony will be held in our parish and will be presided over by Rt. Rev. A. Dharmaraj Rasalam, Bishop, CSI, SKD. All are requested to attend the above function and make it a grand success.
