Faith Formation

Mk.10:52 And Jesus said to him "go your way; your faith has make you well," And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way. Our sisters are bent upon leading all to Jesus Christ our Redeemer so that all who come to Him be filled with a living faith which in turn enables them to bring every one to Him.

Programmes in the field of faith formation:

Prayer session: We organise 40 hours adoration in the Province every month. As part of faith formation, the team members join together and spend time in three hours adoration every month. It is with an aim to renew the faith of the flock whom we strive for. At Thiruvampady and Koodaranji convents, our sehion prayer group members pray before the Blessed sacrament thorughout the day. Our Chavara Hospital staff, including sisters and laity pray before the blessed sacrament from 08.30 am to 03 pm every day.

Home Mission : We conduct "Home Mission" in various parishes. The dedication of our sisters to visit every home to bring all to a personal experience of Jesus Christ is great. Many are led to the sacrament of reconciliation through the prayerful counselling and listening.

Christeen Retreat: It is another instance of sisters giving witness to Jesus in front of children to tune the little minds according to His Will. Through different classes, songs and skits the children are helped to be attracted to the Love of Jesus.

Chavara Fest: With a vision to make St.Chavara known to others Chavara Fest was celebrated in a grand manner. Different competitions like elocution, quiz, versification and essay writing were conducted for both children and grownups in different sections i.e., H.S, U.P, L.P, Catechism teachers and CWC members from different parishes. Also we arranged a pilgrimage to Mannanam including the selected members from different parishes.

Counselling: It is recognised that at present the people experience great pressure in their mind. Considering that a few sisters are specially trained in the field of counselling and thereby we are able to arrange counselling facility in schools, hospitals and families. 7 of our sisters are full timers in this field.

Parish activities: Ward prayers , Mathruvedhi, Jesus Youth, KCYM, catechism, sacristy work, Mission League and Thirubalasakhyam are the different fields where sisters actively do their service in the parishes with their presence, prayers and hard works.

We give chance to the students to visit old age homes, Prison and schools for mentally retarded, so that they learn to express love and care towards the poor. Important occasions the staff and students are taken to pilgrim centres - Mannanam, Ollur etc. Devotion to St. Euphrasia is highly encouraged at school and Sunday schools. The writings of Mother Mary Celine servant of God, is circulated among the students.

Judith Forum :is an organization for widows and singles. Awareness classes in spiritual animation is given once a months. They are also trained in handicrafts like making wreaths, brooms etc. In many parishes in the dioceses have adopted the working of this organization since it gives great enlightment and inspiration to the lonely women.
