ICC Catechism classes are conducted to give formation in the Catholic faith to the children of our Parish.  It's a divine opportunity for our children to have religious education in our Malayalee tradition and culture.


Classes start around the beginning of September in each year and end with two months summer break in July and August.  The exact date of enrolment will be announced short time before September in every year.


The classes are available in 6 levels suitable for children up to 7th grade (below 14 years old) and meet every Sunday throughout the year at following places.


Meidling: 10:45 hrs (Pfarre Maria Lourdes, Tivoligasse 20, 1120 Vienna)

Stadlau: 16:45 hrs (Maria Hilfe der Christen, Erzherzog-Karl Str. 176, 1220 Vienna)

Our Catechism classes established in year 2001 with 15 children in Stadlau SMZ Chapel.  Year to year the number of children were increasing enormously.  Due to space allocation problem for dividing the children in different classes, we had to find out other facilities.  In 2003 we moved to the Stadlau church and we were allowed to use the entire basement area for catechism classes.  We started Catechism classes at the same time in Meidling church also.

Since 2005 September we follow the Catechism lessons based on the text published by the Synodal Commission for Catechesis, Syro-Malabar Catechetical Centre, Cochin.  Now we have 205 catechism students in both units together and 11 teachers and 2 reserve teachers.  We are planning to set up an orientation program for the grown up children of our Community.  The catechism classes begin with a common prayer of children in the church and move to their own classes.  We have introduced semester examinations in January and June of the academic year 2006/2007.

With the Grace of God Almighty, all the teachers are sincerely working on a voluntary basis for a brighter spiritual growth of our young generation.
