The essential building block of our society is family. As we see in Genesis 1:28, “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’
Family Day of 2019 was celebrated in Church on 7th Jul, 2019 at 9.30 am after Holy Mass alongwith Parish Assembly on the topic “Grace filling families” which was selected by the Episcopal Synod of Syro Malankara Catholic Church.
