The family is both the fundamental unit of society as well as the root of culture. Women are the key part of every family and they are having great responsibilities in moulding and maintaining relationships and the existence of the family.
Mathrudeepthi is a mothers group in our parish to work for the wellness of all families of our community by providing seamless awareness of family establishment in the model of Holy Family.
Our vision is to inspire mothers spiritually and socially and make them aware of their responsibilities to bring up their children to true followers of Jesus Christ and thus grow as one worshiping community.
We aim to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and contributes to all aspects of parish activities to support and strengthen its vision. The group determined to work to grow and share a caring, supporting, and encouraging fellowship of community members by inspiringbody, mind, and spirit through friendship, prayer and offering service to each other. ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed‘ is our spirit and we provide support and care for those who need it.
