PASTORAL MINISTRY

The activities of the Archdiocese of Trivandrum are clubbed under three independent commissions and five boards. The three independent Commissions are: Commission for Basic Christian Communities, Commission for Media and Commission for Youth. The five boards are: Board of Pastoral Ministry, Board of Education, Board of Social Action, Board of Temporality and Board for Clergy and Religious.

Board of Pastoral Ministry 

Every activity related with the Church could be included in theme “pastoral.” The Archdiocese of Trivandrum, however, has limited the activities of pastoral ministry under seven commissions:

  • Commission for Bible Apostolate
  • Commission for Christian Faith Formation (Catechism)
  • Commission for Liturgy
  • Commission for Family Apostolate
  • Commission for Evangelization
  • Commission for Pious Associations
  • Commission for Ecumenism and Dialogue

Bible Commission
The Bible commission aims at making Bible an integral part of everyday life of faithful. And the commission enables the faithful to explore the meaning of the Word of God in the cultural context of Asia in general and India in particular.

Commission for Christian Faith Formation (Catechism)
Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, “Catechism aims at presenting an organic synthesis of the essential and fundamental contents of Catholic doctrine, as regards both faith and morals, in the light of the Second Vatican Council and the whole of the Church's Tradition.

Commission for Liturgy
The implications that have been shaped through Bible reading and interpretation, and the significance of doctrines that have been taught at the Catechism class are transformed into practical realization and celebration in everyday life.

 Family Apostolate
The family apostolate commission aims to model the families both as a symbol of the Trinitarian love, care and concern and as an instrument where the kingdom of God becomes a lived experience.

Commission for Evangelization
The only mission of the Church remains evangelization. This sole mission of the Church is realizes in two ways: first, Church actualizes the Gospel in herself and second, Church witness the Gospel to the world.

Commission for Pious Association
Different levels of charism are nourished and enchanted for the spiritual growth of the faithful through the different pious associations. Each association is trained to work to realize the vision of the Archdiocese.

Commission for Ecumenism and Dialogue
The active presence of multi-religions and multi-churches in India, particularly in Kerala, makes obvious the need for a Commission for Ecumenism and Dialogue. The commission aims to contribute dynamically to maintain religious harmony and inter-church relationship by convening periodical meetings with the different religious heads and by participating actively in the programmes of United Christian Movement (UCM).
