Family Union

Family Union comprises of all the members of the Parish, who are divided into small units of having 30 - 40 families as members, in geographically smaller areas. These Units are also called Basic Christian Communities. All the officials of all the Units form the Central Committee from which the Central Executive Committee is elected. The C E C of the Family Union consists of the Chairman (Vicar), the Asst. Vicar, the Vice Chairman (lay person), Secretary, Joint Secretary, Treasurer and Four Committee members. Union of all Units in a Parish is an effective system and network for evangelization, parish administration and implementation of all plans and projects. One representative each from each Unit is elected to the Parish Council. The Vice Chairman is an ex-officio member of the Parish Council. This system aims at bringing back the community spirit and deeper level of faith experience of the Early Christians among today’s catholics.
