THE PARISH


The SCC project entered the archdiocese through what is known as the Bombay Priests’ Synod of 1980 which made a declaration that every parish and every priest would give a priority to the building of Small Christian Communities.
The SCCs implement programs of various types: religious, socio-cultural, outreach, civic and political.

We need to break-up the communities into smaller clusters of families for more effective involvement. Thus far, the average community size is about 50 families and from this large number, some are likely to slip through without taking part in the SCC activities. Hence we have suggested breaking up of these Small Christian Communities (SCCs) into smaller clusters of about ten families each.

Every community is now requested to organize a youth group so that we are able to get more youth involved in the SCCs and through the SCCs, in the parish at large
Our Parish has 14 Small Christian Communities.
