Social Service Centers

The concept of development ignites passion in many; the realization of it vividly expresses in removal of pangs and sorrows of many. In order to change and develop thousands and materialize this truth in the interior hamlets of the four civil districts of the diocese such as Balasore, Bhadrak, Keonjhar and Mayrbhanj Balasore Social Service Society was set up as a vital organ of the Diocese. A special cell was assigned for the social wing when Fr. Paul Kidangan was appointed as the first director of it in 1992. The following year Fr. Jacob Kallupurackal succeeded him to be the director of the social service society and the office was established at Deepthi Bhavan, Pastoral centre at Kuruda. He baptized the social service wing as Balasore Social Service Society (BSSS). In his time with his staff members he initiated several works for the up-liftment of the poor people in many parishes. When he was transferred to Keonjhar in 1998 as the Parish Priest, Fr. Paul Koonamparampath assumed as the director of BSSS. It was during his tenure the super cyclone occurred in Orissa. BSSS played a vital role in relief and rehabilitation of the thousands of people in the four districts of the Diocese. The relief service done by the BSSS is a landmark in the annals of history. In 2002 when Fr. Paul was appointed as the Parish Priest of Barbil, Fr.Laurance T.V was appointed as the director of the BSSS. It was the same year the newly constructed BSSS building was ready for the use and it was shifted to the new building at Balasore. In 2006 when Fr. Laurance T.V. was sent for his higher studies to Philippines the then assistant director, Fr. Mathew Karikulam was elevated to be the director of BSSS. Fr. Mathew continues to be in the office.
