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,
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.
