A Forum of the Fathers of the Church.

The pious organization of Pithru Vedi was started in this church in 2005. Since then this organization of the married male members of the church has been in the forefront of all church activities. The guiding slogan of the Pithru Vedi is "to change the world from your home". We strive to make the world a better place to live in.
Aims and Objectives of Pithru vedi:-
  • To train the members to be capable of formulating an ideal Catholic family as a husband, father and head of the family.
  • To foster family and parish fraternities and help the poor and needy through social services.
  • To take lead in all church activities such as development, fund raising and construction activities as directed by the parish council.
  • To take lead and guide in celebrations of the church and take steps to sustain our age old traditions of St.Thomas Christians.
