1. New Presbyters: The newly posted Presbyters have taken charge of our parish on 01.05.2015. Rev. R. Suresh Kumar, Presbyter and District Chairman has been transferred in from the CSI parish in Dubai. He is a member of CSI, Vazhichal. Evg. Saji N. Stuart is the new Associate Vicar of our parish. He is a member of CSI Paraniam and he has been transferred in from the Sikkim Mission field. He will be ordained as a priest on 24th May. CSI Kattakada welcomes the new vicars to the parish.

2. Palliative Care: The Palliative Care Unit in our parish is functioning in an exemplary manner. A total of 84 families receive aid from this unit in the form of medicines, food kits, medical aid and financial help. The unit helps them seeing their pity-full condition, without regard to their religion or creed. The priority is assigned to those families where the bread-winner is chronically or critically ill.
Approximately, Rs. 70,000 is required to meet the commitments for each month. However, the contributions by the parish members for each month reach only half of the required amount. Hence, it has been decided by the Palliative Care Unit to place “collection boxes” in each home so that willing people can offer their small savings for this purpose. The “collection box” has been released on 3rd May during Sunday service by Rev. Dr. D.J. Ajith Kumar. Anybody willing to help the Palliative Care  Unit may contact its Secretary Shri. E. Vijaya Raj (Mob. No. 9349141072).
