SH 60 PLUS
The aim is to promote fraternity and solidarity among senior citizens of the Parish through collective socialisation and alleviate the feelings of isolation faced by many among them.
Senior citizens are those people who have shed their sweat and blood for the well-being of their own families and the society and who feel an abrupt vacuum in their course ahead. To make them active and to motivate them monthly meetings are conducted on every first Friday at 4:15 am.
Senior citizens are well experienced in their own fields, gifted with many talents. In the meetings they share their experiences engage themselves in entertainments music, recreations, celebrations like birthday Christmas Onam Easter et cetera. We also arrange tours occasionally. Classes are frequently taken by the Scholars and eminent personalities like doctor Jose Joseph, Principal Government Medical College Kottayam, Rev. Sr.Dr. Leesa, director of Jeeva Counselling centre Kottayam, Rev. Fr.Jins Nellikkattil, Prof. Mathew Pral etc within a period of 1 year to motivate the members.
