welcome to csi immanuel cathedral
The CSI Immanuel Cathedral, Ernakulam (formerly known as CSI Immanuel Church under the Diocese of North Kerala of the Church of South India ) was dedicated more than 110 years ago. The site, originally comprising 56 cents, was bought in 1905 by Rev. J.H. Bishop and the original church was built largely through his efforts, in memory of Rev. E.B. Russel who was a missionary of the Church of England in
Cathedral family members warmly welcome Rev. John Joseph Achen and family to our Cathedral as the new Vicar and Chairman.
Achen is serving now as the Clergy Secretary of our CSI Diocese of Cochin. Achen has taught many of our Pastors serving in Kerala at various Diocesan levels. He also was the Professor at KUT Seminary, Trivandrum for many years.
May God empower Achen and Kochamma to render their fruitful ministry in the Parish.
FROM OUR VICAR
Beloved in Christ,
Warm greetings in the precious name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ!!!
As you all know I took over the charge of Immanuel Cathedral on 26th May 2020 and Rev. P.J. Jacob Achen was relieved on 26th May 2020. I thankfully remember all the meritorious ministries rendered by Rev. P.J Jacob Achen and family in the past years to Immanuel church and the congregation and pray that, may the good God bless them abundantly in their retirement life. Let’s remember them in our daily prayers. Even though I took charge on 26th May, we shifted our residence from Trichur to Ernakulam on 29th of this month. The time I came to Ernakulam is special in every aspect, the onslaught of Corona virus is still continuing, people are living in lock down with fear and anxiety on their faces. The circumstances in which we are living today are really very horrendous because of the persisting menace of a pandemic- Covid19. We have no opportunity to gather together, worship together and no fellowship meetings; however for the last three months we have been worshipping at our homes.
