Bishop Selvister Ponnumuthen Chairman, Fr. Gregory R.B, Secretary

Diocesan directors: Fr. Shaju Antony from Kannur, Fr. Franson from Calicut, Fr. Vimal Arogyaraj from Sultanpet, Fr. Clifford from Kottappuram, Fr. Antony Arackal from Varapuzha, Fr. Sibichan from Kochi, Fr. Joy Puthenveettil from Apappuzha, Fr. Baiju M. Vincent from Punalur, Fr. Joseph Sugun from kollam, Fr. Muthappan from Thiruvananthapuram and Fr. Ajeesh from Neyyattinkara.

2. The Service Team gathers three times in a year.

3.  In Kerala Region, we have planned a Regional Convention and Mission a congress in 2017 October 13,14, 15. As a preparation for this Mission Congress, we have planned a three level renewal programme for the Kerala Latin Church. It already started from 2015 October. First part of the renewal programme focused on the renewal of parish level activities. In the second level renewal, we are focusing on the renewal of all the diocesan level activities.

4. We have introduced the ministry system through BCCs so that the BCCs will be more active and participatory. This ministry system is already in place. As a part of strengthening the ministry system in the diocesan level, we are going to conduct ministry gathering in our preparation we are going to focus on the Kerala level renewal activities.

5.  Our BCC Convention and Mission Congress will be strengthened the BCC activities and through the preparation activities, we hope to evolve the future activities.

6.  We have an active Regional Resource Team.

7.  This resource team will generally meet twice in a year.

8. Last year we conducted a training program for the resource persons and now they are forming and training resource teams in their own respective dioceses. Through the training they could strengthen the BCC leaders and ministry representatives by imparting the knowledge on the ministries and thus the ministry activities become fruitful. The ministry is becoming a good platform for the activities of BCC’s. They also aim at establishing participating leadership styles in the church.

9. Through the activities of Resource Team and the Service Team members could reach out to all our BCC members.
Kerala latin Church has been united in the pastoral activities through the Kerala Region Latin Catholic Council (KRLCC). KRLCC has chosen its basic goal as strengthening grass root communities during the last six years. BCC service team was trying to unite all the BCCs with same structure and same vision. Hence, we could succeed in forming the Kerala Latin Church with one vision and one structure. Through the Bcc activities we could motivate the church leaders about the need of establishing a participatory Church in Kerala Latin Church. We also have given training on the method of planning and budgeting in all the parishes. Since the ministry system have been implemented, BCCs become more alive and thereby more participatory.

Through the Mission Congress and BCC convention, we hope to bring out ten years plan for the Kerala Latin Church from 2017 onwards. In various levels we have initiated the discussions for the ten year plan of action. All the commission secretaries will present this ten year plan of action in the convention and their presentations will be determining the future path of Kerala BCC activities. We are busy with empowering the BCC activities through ministries in view of forthcoming mission congress and BCC convention.

BCC Activities of Kerala Region during the year 2015-16

BCC activities in the Latin Church of Kerala during the 2015-16 year were centered upon the second phase of renewal in view of the mission congress. It was mainly the diocesan level ministry gatherings. In all the 12 dioceses the ministry members of other dioceses gathered and such a 12 gatherings were conducted. It helped to deepen the ministry system in all the dioceses.

The whole Kerala Latin Church is moving towards a mission congress and BCC convention on Oct 6, 7 and 8, 2017 at Vallarpadam in Ernakulam. In view of this mission congress and BCC convention, we have already initiated in the year 2014 a three level of preparation which reaches to the BCC. In the first year we have focused on the parish renewal. In the second year our concern was the diocesan level of renewal and in the third year, it is going to be the renewal of the whole of Kerala Latin Church through BCCs. If the parish wants to be renewed, it should be through the renewal of BCC activities. The BCCs are to be made more participatory and alive.  We have decided to make all the parish activities into a more participatory and dynamic. So we thought of bringing all the commission activities in BCC levels and from there to the parish level.  It is not easy to bring down all the commissions to all the BCCs so we have clustered all the Kerala level and diocesan level commissions into 6 ministries. All the commissions which directly in line with pastoral activities were brought under pastoral ministry, all the commissions which are related to educational level activities were brought under the education ministry; all the activities which are focused on families are brought under family ministry. All the youth activities are brought under your ministry and finally all the activities related laity are brought under the laity ministry. From one unit, first they elect officials and then the six ministry representatives. In the parish all the ministry representatives will have their gathering and from there they elect one coordinator who will be the member of the parish council.

As a preparation for the mission congress and mission congress we wanted to make one vision and structure in the whole of Latin Catholic Church of Kerala. After giving the vision and forming the same structure in all the parishes we were trying to renew the diocesan activities through the ministry gatherings.   In the ministry gatherings, in a particular diocese all those who are elected for that particular ministry will gather together to discuss and deepen the participatory approach and method of action. This kind of ministry gatherings is being held in various Latin dioceses.
On the 16 October, 2016, we have inaugurated the final phase of preparation in all the cathedrals by lightening a mission candle, releasing the logo and with a special mass introduction and prayer of the faithful. On the 23 October, 2016, it was inaugurated in all the parishes and on 30th October it was inaugurated in all our 13600 BCC units. In connection with the final year of preparations, Kerala Latin bishops have already came up with a joint pastoral letter.

We are dedicating each month for a particular ministry and on such months we will be doing some study classes and certain renewal programmes in all the parishes. The month of January is dedicated for the pastoral ministry and all the activities come under pastoral life is going to be highlighted during this month.
