Late Rev. Dr. Oommen Koruth, then vicar of the parish collected a small group of elderly people to have fellowship in 1976. This is the humble beginning of Senior’s Fellowship of the parish which now spread to almost all parishes of Mar Thoma Sabha. Those who have the age of 60 years and above are eligible to be the members of the fellowship.
Regular meetings were held on third Friday of the month at Church. Cottage meetings were also arranged in the houses of members at their request. Bible studies, Discussion, Intercessory prayers, Solos, Duets, Discussions, Bible Quiz, Thought for the day, Games, etc. were some of the events held during the meetings.
Special Holy Communion service for short duration was conducted on every second Saturday of each month for the convenience of the senior members. Holy Communion was also arranged at the residence for senior members, at their request, who were sick and old and not able to attend any of the Holy Communion services held in Church.
House visit to old, sick and bereaved members was conducted at various areas on various dates under the leadership of our Vicar/President Rev. A. T. Zachariah. Individual and group visits were also held.
