Glad to introduce the spiritual sentinel of the Diocese of Irinjalakuda. The elegant and splendid divine house of worship at Anandapuram attracts faithful irrespective of caste and creed. The parish feast is here the festival of all religions. The Servant of God Fr. Canisius CMI is the spiritual pride of this soil, who had sown the seeds of the word of God both in words and deeds among the people whom he had served. The service of CSM religious to the old age persons is remarkable which speaks of the Christian charity. The educational endeavours of CMC are praiseworthy for their dedicated ministry in the integral formation of the young one’s. Thanks to the diocesan venture “Sanjo Sadan”, for many have liberated from the clutches of alcoholism and drug addiction. The faithful had to struggle a lot in its march towards present status of a joyful and beautiful parish due to many historical events. But one has to appreciate the indomitable persistence and profound optimism of the people of this greenish and enthusiastic parish who stood together amidst all the pains and panics.
"Glory of God is man fully alive." Glad to be the pastor of this lively and lovely parish. This is a parish of joy as the name itself denotes. The source of joy must be found in prayer, charity and unceasing thanksgiving. With profound sense of gratitude I rem-ember the bygone pastors, priests and religious who worked in this parish and who are from this parish and above all my dearest parishioners for their genuine support and deep commitment to make this parish, a spiritual powerhouse of our diocese. Be proud and be joyful for being a Christian.
