Parithrana: – The wealth of the word.

 

The term ‘Parithrana’ stands for the “The House of Redemption”.  As the name indicates the ‘Great redeemer’ has in many ways practised His mission of redemption through the instrumentality of Parithrana. The redeemer stays and the redemption continues.  Welcome to Parithrana the House of redemption.

To brief the Providence

Opened on December 1992, Parithrana was ably guided by Fr. George Vadakkekara its first director for 4 years. Fr. Michael Panachickel V.C. succeeded him for another term of four years. Anointed ministers of the word have always been a blessing on the Parithrana ministries.

The Providence of the Divine has gone into many lives through the Parithrana Ministries.
