THE CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS OF THE SOCIETY OF THE OBLATES OF THE SACRED HEART BEGINS !!!!
The Society of the Oblates of the Sacred Heart (O.S.H.), Kottayam, which was founded by the then Bishop of Kottayam Mar Alexander Choolaparambil, under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit on November 21, 1921, at a place called Chengalakattukunnu near Kottayam, is heading towards its centenary year. For the past hundred years, this Society has engaged itself in evangelization and Apostolic ministries in the Archeparchy of Kottayam as well as in the universal Catholic Church, under the spiritual guidance of the eparchial bishops of Kottayam. In view of the ardent love of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, the members of this Society strove to bring forth the Good news of Christ to all. In these years, the Society has been a spiritually motivating force, not only to the Archeparchy of Kottayam, but also for the all the Knanaya Catholics elsewhere. Hence, remembering our founder and all our deceased members of the Society, and with profound gratitude to God, His Grace Mar Mathew Moolakkatt will inaugurate the centenary year celebrations on November 21, 2020, by igniting the centenary candle during the Holy Mass. Therefore, in this occasion, we shall invoke the blessing and divine providence of the Lord Almighty to strive earnestly for the best of our Society. We also request your valuable prayers and support in this centenary year.
