Parish Mission is a parish oriented outreach programme which is undertaken during Onam and Christmas holidays. Students visit selected (according to the request) parishes of Kerala in groups and spend 4-5 days in the respective parish, engaging in spiritual activities. Parish Missions are under the direct supervision of Faculty members. The Seminary Publications produce exclusive literature in the form of songs, catechetical studies and homilies for this purpose. Parish Missions benefit seminarians to have a practical knowledge in the field of parish ministry as the main agendas under this programme includes bible study classes, music sessions, discussions with various spiritual organizations, house visits etc.


The Parish Mission also releases a music CD under the banner ‘Divyaspandanam’ every year. Songs included are written and composed exclusively by the students. The CD receives a new title every year. In order to get the availability of the Parish Mission programme in your Parish, contact:
