Mathru Jyothi

Church|Queensland|St Alphonsa Syromalabar Parish Townsville

Mathru Jyothi is a fellowship of the mothers of the parish recognizing Mother Mary as the model of our faith, family, and community life. This group has been vibrant in our Church since its inception on July 1, 2010 – providing support to our church’s spiritual, cultural, social, and organizational activities.  The members of the Mathru Jyothi are primarily all the mothers of the parish.

Our mission is to grow and share a caring supporting, and encouraging fellowship of mothers by nurturing body, mind, and spirit through friendship, prayers, and offering service to each other. The spirit of Mathru Jyothi is to promote happy and devotional families in our parish. This forum provides the mothers with a voice in our church community.  In essence, Mathru Jyothi contributes to all aspects of parish activities such as parish picnic, church decorations, retreats, distribution of food to the needy, etc. to support and strengthen its vision to grow as one worshiping community.
