Charity is the identifying mark of Christianity, the history of Christianity is steeped in the history of charity.”LOVE GOD AND THY NEIGHBOURS “is the sole dictum that encapsulates the divine commandments. The Social Vision and Mission of the Diocese of Irinjalakuda reflected in the Pastoral motto of the newly consecrated Bishop Mar Pauly Kannookkaden “As you did it to the least one ,You did it to me”(Mt.25:40). 'Bless a home’ is an extension of this philanthropic vision of the Diocese. The main concern of this project is alleviation of poverty and liberation of the downtrodden. Our target people are the poor and marginalized families in our society. The project is an integrated family development programme, a participatory one in which the partner families, selected on the basis of specific criteria, are guided to self-reliance through sustainable support. We have to make sure that the deserving families are helped.

  • We are called to be icon of God’s love. Human beings can be holy only by their practical compassion for the poor, the oppressed, the powerless and the outcasts. We should attend to the needs and concerns of the poor and despised. Jesus had a special interest in reaching out to them and sharing the good news of salvation.
