HOME MISSION


It is a 15 days long intensive renewal programme conducted in selected parishes in the Archdiocese, since 1993. For this programme, a team of 15 to 20 religious sisters who are qualified in personal and family conselling have to stay at the parish for the whole 15 days of Home Mission. This team of sisters is grouped themselves, consisting of two sisters in each group, visit each of the family to listen their grievances and problems – both spiritual and material, of the parishioners, guide them on the right way, pray with the family members and thus make a Christian atmosphere in the family. Besides this, the team conducts prayer sessions on every evening in small groups like Basic Christian Community, group wise orientation classes for parents, youth and children and one-day fasting and prayer with the whole parishioners who gathered in the parish church.

In short this Home Mission may help to promote the unity and Christian charity among the parishioners along with the all round development of the family as a whole. This makes the parish community into a one family of vibrant Christian community.
