Consecration of the new Church and blessing of Kalkurisu at Kalluvilai on 04 September 2022
Consecration of the new Church and blessing of Kalkurisu at Kalluvilai:
The community of St. Mother Teresa was formed in 2004 by Rev. Fr. Joseph Muthuplackal MST with four families. For the last seventeen years the community nourished their spiritual life in a chapel room of Catechetical Centre. The Eparchy allotted the community a plot of land belongs to the Kanyakumari Social Service Society (KKSSS). Rev. Fr Saji Ezhampaserril SDB, former Parish Priest, began the construction of the new church in 2018. Due to financial constraints and COVID 19 pandemic, the construction work was rather slow. Rev. Fr. Aby Poovathumootil, present Parish Priest, completed the work. On 04 September 2022 I consecrated the new Church, blessed the Kalkurisu and presided over the concelebrated Holy Qurbana in the presence of Rev. Fr. Thomas Powathuparampil, Vicar General, Fathers and Sisters of the diocese and the parishioners. I appreciate and congratulate the Parish Priest and parishioners for this great work.
