Media Release

Mangaluru, Feb 18: Being a part of a small Christian community, sharing the faith, hearing and celebrating it, is the most effective way to develop in it. The Small Christian Community (SCC) is an excellent means of explaining the relationships between living and faith. 

A training session for small Christian communities was held on February 18 at the auditorium of St Lawrence English Medium School.  

The ceremony began with ‘The Enthronement of the Holy Bible,’ which was followed by a prayer song. Fr Maxim D'Souza was welcomed with a bouquet of flowers by Onil Lobo . The resource person was introduced by Lancy D'Souza, director of Small Christian Community, who also greeted everyone present. 

Fr Maxim D'Souza, parish priest, Jeppu, was the day's resource person. Maxim focused on the development, necessity, purpose, aim, and significance of SCC and ward groups during his insightful discussion and insightful PowerPoint presentation. He gave the ward committee's roles and responsibilities to SCC a briefing. Along with providing details on the framework, he also offered fresh perspectives on how to run SCC meetings in our wards. He emphasised how important it is for people to have the right attitude towards SCC in order for them to fulfil their roles along with what steps can be taken to unite the ward as a family to improve interpersonal relationships and establish strong Christian communities through the dissemination of God's word.  

Fr Andrew Leo D’Souza parish priest, John D’Silva, vice president Parish Patrol Council, Santosh Misquith secretory, Parish Patrol Council, Onil Lobo convener, Lavita secretory for Small Christian Community were present. 

In a short message, Fr Andrew Leo D’Souza, parish priest, implored people of faith to attend to the meeting with their families, to take part in the ward feast at least once a year, to join other wards in prayers, and to enhance their spiritual growth.  

The two-hour session was benefited by around 150 members Fr Maxim D’Souza cleared the doubts and queries raised by the participants. The training was concluded by proposing the vote of thanks by Mary Miranda.
