We, the Parishners of the Holy Spirit Church at Tagore Nagar in Puducherry, are a community of baptized Christians who profess an unshakable faith in Jesus Christ and a firm loyalty to our Motherland India.
We are committed to the Kingdom and its Values proclaimed by Jesus and as found in the Gospels of the Holy Bible. We yearn for the day when every value of the Kingdom, specially honesty, justice and equality will be held in high esteem and practiced; we strive in earnest towards the same in our personal lives.
Responding to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit, the Patron of our Parish, and as true sons and daughters of holy Mother the Church, we want to earnestly work to give ourselves the experience of the love and union of minds and hearts of the Christians of the early church by promoting the life of the Anbiams (Basic Christian Communities). Moreover we witness to our being Resurrection People by dynamically engaging in various evangelical and public welfare ministries to our brothers and sisters.
Convinced that Formal Education is a slow but steady agent for transforming society and its culture and imbuing it with the Evangelical Values, we have been engaged in formal education of the children of the Parish area from the beginning and will continue to do so through the Matriculation Higher Secondary School. We do this also by the non-formal Education to the Faith through the Sunday Catechism School for all the catholic children of the Parish.
Under the guidance of Mary Help of Christians, and under the spell of St. John Bosco, the Father and Teacher of Youth, we wish to be very close to and concerned about our own Parish’s children and youth in order to make of them ardent Witnesses of the Faith and zealous Proclaimers of the Gospel in areas far beyond the confines of our Parish of Tagore Nagar.
