Dear Family Members
Varikkattu Kudumbam is one of the oldest Syrian Christian families of Kerala. Some of the branches of our family are about nine generations old. Having come from a village called Varikattu near Thiruvalla, the greatness of our family stems from the hard work and most of all the exemplary character of our forefathers. The names of late M/s V. K. Ipe Vaniyapurackal, V. A. Joseph Valavuchirackal, C. P. George Chakkalaparambil, C .U. Mathew Kochupurackal, T. C. Korah Thaiparambil and C. I. Varkey Chakkalaparambil, cannot be forgotten. It is our paramount duty to follow their footsteps and preserve their memories.
It is with pride and privilege that we present a project for housing an office for the Varikkattu Kudumbayogam at Kottayam. As a member of the ancient Varikkattu Kudumbam, we are all duty bound to establish an office at Kottayam to be the focal point of our activities. The ancient Varikkattu Kudumbam was known for its cultural and economic heights in society and we should be more active within the society, as it is the need of the hour. We have some very eminent bishops like Most Rev. Dr. Philipose Mar Theophilus, Most Rev Yuhanon Mar Athanasius who are a source of strength for us. The blessings of late Fr. Jacob Punnachirayil,
Fr. Kallupurakal George Joseph and very Rev. Thyparambil Kurian George Corepiscopa, are still serving the community. There are several professional men who have attained immense status in their professional career. Our family is even Mentioned in the book “Christians of Kerala” published by the Oxford University in 1993, Eighth impression 2010.
The unity of our Kudumbayogam in creative activities will give much strength and courage to each member striving for progress in life. It is a fact that the absence of an office at Kottayam town is causing much inconvenience to our activities. Our developmental
activities are hindered by the same. We have several priceless records which need to be preserved for the future generation. Therefore we need to construct an office which would exhibit our family’s social standing in the heart of the Kottayam town. The advantages of such an office are multifold. The young and the old can interact by sharing views, engage in games and travel down the lane of nostalgia. Each member of the family will be the real beneficiary of such a project. It is therefore brought to the notice of all the members that the development efforts have to be taken up jointly. The present land value and construction costs make this a formidable task. There should not be an impediment to realize our dream.
There should be no compromise to our determination and unity to make this project a reality.To achieve our dream we need a piece of land in the heart of Kottayam town. Any one of our family members may be magnanimous enough to donate this land to the
Kudumbayogam, such a person will be honoured for his/her generosity. The year 2016 is of much importance for our family being the 50th and it coincides with the 50th as Bishop. It is our wish to celebrate both these events in our new office at Kottayam.
We solicit your valuable contribution either financially or by donating land; building materials. Your donations can be made in either one or several instalments. Most of all your valuable presence both by will and soul for accomplishing this prestigious dream is essential.
The Varikkattu Kumdumbayogam will be greatly indebted to you; and your efforts will be inscribed in golden letters in the history of Varikkattu Kudumbayogam.
