CELEBRATING FATHERHOOD IN CHRIST
Pithruvedi is an organization that welcomes all married men from families in the Parish
to become members. The association is dedicated to St. Joseph, the Patron saint, who
serves as a role model for husbands and fathers through his complete surrender to God's
will, diligent protection of the holy family, and exemplary self-control.
"The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them."
On October 18, 2009, Pithruvedi had its formal inauguration from His Beatitude Cardinal
Mar George Alencherry, the present Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church,
at the Presentation Convent School Ground in Nerul. In this first assembly, H.E. Mar
Thomas Elavanal promulgated the Pithruvedi By-Laws.
The primary objective of this association is to bring the members of the parish
community together in their shared religious beliefs by nurturing them with spiritual
principles and teachings. Pithruvedi endeavors to instill the significance of
selflessness, prioritizing family values, and leading the family in a life centered
around prayer and worship.
The members of Pithruvedi solely host the feast of St. Joseph, the patron saint of the
parish, which includes liturgy, choir, and Ottunercha, in addition to actively
participating and carrying out each of their respective tasks throughout every parish
feast and programme. Additionally, Pithruvedi takes part in diocesan events like
tug-of-war contests and badminton competitions.
