Kerala Latin Catholic Association (KLCA)
About Kerala Latin Catholic Association (KLCA)

Kerala Latin Catholic Association (KLCA) is a forum of lay people of Latin Catholic Church of Kerala with a vision of integral development of Latin Catholic Communities of Kerala, irrespective of cast and creed in general, based on Christian principles.
The KLCA unit at Arthunkal renders spectacular service. Very Rev. Fr. Christopher Arthasseril is always there with his ever lending hands of support for all the activities of KLCA. The main objective of the unit is to foster unity among the Latin Catholics with concurrence of Kerala Regional Latin Catholic Council (K.R.L.C.C.). We take initiative and leadership in the Community day celebrations in the parish.

Every human person craves for appreciation and recognition in his social life. Recognizing the necessity of felicitating our community members at the moments of their great achievements, Arthunkal unit has always been at the fore front with words and deeds of appreciation.

We also encourage the youth to achieve government jobs rather than going after private sectors which lures them with huge salary but hides the danger of insecurity. In order to help them in this regard, we conduct PSC coaching classes and many are recruited as the result of this class.

Jesus has been the best feminist of all times. It obliges us to strive for the uplifting of the women folk of our community. KLCA unit of Arthunkal shows a keen attention in this realm and organize programmes and projects in association with Kerala Police.

It’s a fact to be accepted with pain that, our people are least aware of the possibilities and potentialities that the government offers us through reservation. KLCA has a deep concern in this regard and take initiative to conscientise the community with the help of career guidance clases.

We also concentrate in spreading and inculcating catholic ideologies and principles through social contacts and media, to safeguard and protect the socio-political issues of the community by bringing them before ruling government in accordance with the common policies of K.R.L.C.C. and to plan and implement programmes that are needed for the growth of the society in educational, Social, political and economic spheres.
