“SHEKINAH MINISTRIES”, is a Catholic Evangelical team working under the Archdiocese of Thrissur, Kerala, India. The word ‘SHEKINAH’, means the ‘Glorious Presence of God’ . Shekinah Ministries began in the year 2000 and since then, it is engaged in conducting Retreats, Conventions, Spiritual Seminars and Gatherings in parishes all over India, Middle East and Europe. A group of people dedicated wholly to Jesus works very efficiently with the sole aim of establishing the kingdom of God. This ministry is committed to helping people from all walks of life experience the unconditional love and unending hope found only in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
All the activities and services of Shekinah Ministries are under complete submission to the authorities of the Catholic Church. The official teachings of Catholic Church are our guideline. His Excellency Mar Raphael Thattil, the Auxiliary Bishop of Thrissur Archdiocese is our patron, under whose powerful guidance and blessings, all spiritual ministries are conducted. Also the guidance and encouragement of our church authorities is a great supporting factor in all our services. We are spiritually directed by Rev. Fr. Francis of Thrissur Archdiocese.
Br.Santhosh Karumathra, a lay preacher under Thrissur Archdiocese (Wadakkanchery), who has been preaching for the last 20 years , oversees the overall functioning of the Ministry. This Evangelists straight forward and uncompromising message of God’s love has inspired hundreds to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Out Reach Ministry
Our Out-Reach Ministry conducts five-day Residential Retreats in various centres and Parishes. Those who come for retreats are given strong convictions on the basis of the ‘word of God’ concerning the Salvation and freedom that we received through the Crucification of our Lord. Also they are moulded into bold and faithful servants of our Lord through the Eucharistic Adoration Services, Confession and daily Mass etc. We also conduct evening Conventions, youth Retreats and services for the Religious. From 2006 onwards, the Almighty God paved the way for spreading the message of salvation through us, outside the borders of India. Today as a part of worldwide Evangelisation, the Retreat team under the leadership of Br.Santhosh Karumathra conducts, prayer meetings, Conferences and Seminars in different parts of the world like UAE,US and UK etc. Br. Santhosh remains committed, more than ever, to preaching the ‘Glorious Gospel’ of Jesus Christ, teaching the unchanging word of God and expecting the Mighty and Miraculous power of the ‘Holy Spirit’.
In the year 2009, we realised that using Medias for Evangelisation is a great possibility. Towards the end of 2010, our Lord opened the doors for the Television Ministry. The Church Authorities responded very positively and extended all the support and encouragement. We started 30 minutes weekly episodes through the Shalom Television Network entitled as “Mahathwathin Sannidhyam”.
This service is telecasted on every Tuesday at 7:30 PM since October 2010 and re-telecasted on every Friday 1:30 PM, Sunday 5:00 PM and Monday 11:30 PM.
Also, God Almighty paved the way to telecast this service through the Goodness Channel for a weekly service with the Title “Puthiya Panthakustha”, on every Friday 6:00 – 6:30 PM. and re-telecasted on every Saturday 11.30 PM and Sunday 12.30 PM. Another service through the Shalom Channel for a weekly service with the Title “Mission Fire”, on every Saturday 8:00 – 8:30 PM. and re-telecasted on every Wednesday 6.00 PM.
To confirm the call in Media section, ‘Jehovah Jireh’ in his name, has added everything that is needed in this field to the ministry. Today, he has given us the strong surety that these services are a great blessing to those who sincerely wish to grow in Jesus Christ.
Apart from this Television Ministry, God has blessed us to spread the Good news through the publication of booklets on various aspects and also through DVD’s on different bible studies. We are having a heavy burden to expose the God– given gift of ‘Media’ in its maximum level to spread the gospel faster and more effectively.
We have a strong group of dedicated people who intercede for the Evangelisation of the whole world. This ministry operates with a dedicated mission - “pray for all people of all nations and all backgrounds” .They have received personal zeal from God and has a heavy burden in their hearts for the conversion of all those who deny our Lord. So they have devoted their whole life and have thrown away all the possibilities to the established in the world. They spend their time pleading for the whole world and those who are sick and troubled.
The Almighty Lord permitted us to be organised for becoming more powerful in his work. After many years of prayer, Shekinah Ministries started its office in Aranattukara, Thrissur. Today, all the activities of the ministry are centralised in the office. Our Lord Jesus had blessed us and now the communications, intercession and all the activities related to the TV ministry (recording, Editing) are all done from the office building.
The word of God as well as the Church repeatedly affirms that we are short of time. What we have today, must be used to the fullness to achieve our ultimate purpose of spreading the word of God. We are in constant prayer to reveal more powerful and effective ways of spreading gospel, for the final harvest is near. Each and every soul must be saved – for each individual is very precious for its creator.
So be ready!. Have you prepared yourself to be a Holy vessel which can be mightily used by the Holy God?
God Bless you.
