MINISTRY OF FAMILY APOSTOLATE (MFA)

 

We respect and honour You and Your Family. This ministry aims to develop, support and sustain God centered families and family centered indvidual development. Church is a communion of families. Families of a geographical area gather together in fellowship to pray, share the word of God and to help each other to grow in discipleship of christ Jesus. This gathering is called "Kudumba Koottayma" (small christian community). Together these SCC's of an area is called parish (basic christian community). These SCC's of an area constitute foranes and inturn foranes together constitute diocese. So family is the smallest unit of Church.

Church ministers families in all realms of life; because church is pro-life, pro-family, pro-God. Family apslosate of the diocese of irinjalakuda ministers family in 12 different facets.

FAMILY APOSTOLATE ANIMATORS

The ministry of Family apostolate is a bridge between the families and the hierarchy. In the process of enabling families to the quality and sanctity of marriage, family and the diocesan office is linked through the animator couple from every parish. One couple of moral reputation and practicing faith recommended by the parish priest from each parish constitutes the animators. They work as liaison between families in the parish and the diocesan team. They form a team of similarly interested couples in their parish. We train them in basic counseling skills. They are to assess family problem and serve as a referral centers.
