Associations are an important asset to the parish, since they play a significant role in fostering lay involvement in pastoral matters. In the words of the late Pope John Paul II, “it is the responsibility of the pastors to guide, accompany and encourage these groups so that they may be well integrated into the life and mission of the parish “. (Novo Millennio Ineunte)
Keeping the words of the late Holy Father in mind, our parish has a number of Associations and Cells. These groups have their meetings (monthly/weekly) under the guidance of a Spiritual Advisor, who is generally one of the priests of the parish. Since 2009, our parish has formed a Council of Associations which meets at regular intervals in order to facilitate effective networking among the various Associations/Cells.
