The Dream Project of Athirampuzha Church

Mar Kavukkattu Memorial Daiva Paripalana Bhavan

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
I was naked and you clothed me,
I was sick and you visited me,
I was in prison and you came to me.'

Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.(Matt 25 : 35-40)

“ Be a good Samaritan to yourNeighbors
Gain hundred fold graces from God.
Join hands with the Ambitious Project of Athirampuzha Parish.
Nests for the landless -homeless families of the parish
Pray and open your hearts and tight fists to realize this dream project. ”

My beloved ones in Jesus Christ,

Hearty greetings from Athirampuzha Parish. I hope that you all are keeping fine. As you are aware, our parish could show a remarkable growth in all its activities during the last five years .Every year we are spending a major portion of our income for charitable purposes. We could do all these with the tremendous support extended by the parishioners. It is quite pity that more than forty families in our parish are still homeless and landless. Having no regular income, they cannot get a shelter even on rent. Can we ignore this deplorable condition of our neighbors?

So we launched a new housing project 'MarKavukattu Memorial Daiva ParipalanaBhavan',a dream project envisaged relying on Divine Providence and your good-hearted generosity.

The mission that drives me isto house, support and care for vulnerable and excluded people who either have been, or are at risk of, sleeping rough and homelessness. In this project I do have only the sole aim that is to make sure that homeless and excluded people can improve their quality of life and ensure the effective pastoralcare;with which I hope that the young people from this family can emerge with strong moral fibre, talented and educated.

To make this dream project a reality, huge amount is required. I request you to do something for the cause of thepoor, to do something to kindle light for those struggling in the darkness.

I hope you also become a part of it with your valuable contributions. So that our dream may have a place before of almighty God.

With regards
Lovingly yours in Christ

Rev. Dr. Mani Puthiyidom
