Fr. Sebastian Panjikkaran

Glad to be the part of the St Mary's Forane Parish, by being its Vicar. The historic building itself, by its physical presence, symbolizes both the glory of God and culture of Christians here. The traditional Bl. Mariyam Thressia Feast and AmbuPerunnal is the main religious festivity which attracts thousands of people. The Mariyam Thressia home adjacent to the Parish is a refuge for the people who are burdened by trials and tribulations. Presence of different Chapels, Religious Houses, Educational Institutions and Religious, Charitable, and Social Ventures make this parish a locus for the integral development of human beings irrespective of caste and creed. Forane, and it's ancienty should be an excelling model and example to other parishes in solid faith, unceasing hope and profound charity.

I am really happy and delighted to be the part of this parish by being its Assistant Vicar. The knowledge of the historical antecedents that conduced to the present magnificent situation of this parish is all the more thrilling and inspirational. Deeply appreciate all the pastors who were real visionaries and missionaries who led the people of God in the true Faith. Gratefully remember all the Religious who patiently and sincerely committed their lives for the integral growth of this parish. The vibrant and solid faith of our forefathers is the fortune of this parish. Blessed Mariyam Thressia and venerable Joseph Vithayathil, spiritual director of blessed Mariyam Thressia and Co-Founder of the congregation of holy family, made the Parish heaven. May God bless all of us.
