Cherupushpa Mission League

Cherupushpa Mission League is a lay organization for children who wish to undertake missionary work of Jesus Christ. As as mark of the prayerful memory of St Theresa ( Little Flower) , Mission League was started in India, specifically in Kerala at Bharanaganam in the year 1947. Inspired by the word of His Holiness Pope Leo XIII “The salvation of India is in her sons”, Mr. P C Abraham (popularly known as Kunjhettan) took the leading role in institutionalizing Mission League across the state of Kerala. At present, it is the biggest organization for laity in Asia and the organization has spread to Europe and United States now. The Heavenly patron for Mission League is St Theresa of Liseux and the co patrons are St Francis Xavier and St. Alphonsa.

Holy Family Syro Malabar Catholic Mission has started the unit of CML in 2011 under the guidance of the Mission director, Fr. Mathew Munjhanattu. All catechism children who had received Holy Communion are members of the mission league. As young kids under the process of faith formation, CML is a platform to practice what they learn in religious education classes and so.

Mottos of Mission League

God’s love was unconditional one filled with mercy.

The call to be a Christian is to serve the community and the society in all possible ways.
Jesus Christ set the example of Supreme Sacrifice. The love to fellow being is tested on the rubbing stone of sacrifice.
Nowhere do we see Him so clearly as on the cross. Nowhere do we see His deity so manifest as on the cross. There is no crown without cross and no gain without pain.
