The vision of the Catechism department is
to nurture the faith formation of children, fostering their spiritual, ecclesial, and
social growth. We strive to provide a platform that encompasses faith formation, value
education, worship, and service.
Our objective is to cultivate leadership qualities among our children, empowering them
to become confident and compassionate individuals. Moreover, we aim to guide them in
recognizing our unique and distinct identity as St. Thomas Christians in the Diocese of
Kalyan. Additionally, we encourage our children to showcase their hidden talents through
active participation in various religious and cultural events of the Church. Together,
we embark on a journey of holistic development, nurturing the minds, hearts, and spirits
of our young ones.
