UTC finance campaign in CSI Kanyakumari diocese and CSI Karnataka Central Diocese

The UTC finance campaign for the UTC Centenary Mahatma Gandhi hostel building project has been underway for two weeks in the CSI churches of the Kanyakumari diocese. For over two weeks faculty and students have been visiting several churches in the diocese, preaching in churches and talking to pastors and lay people. The moderator of the CSI and bishop of the Kanyakumari diocese, along with the pastors and committee members of various churches in the diocese have been of immense help during the campaign.

The alumni of the UTC and various pastors have been helping the college to plan and execute the visits to introduce the activities of the college and present the importance and urgency of the hostel building project. It also gave an opportunity to the faculty members and students to talk and work together with the alumni of the college who are doing very impressive work in their assigned churches.

The covers of the college were distributed early among the church members one or two weeks ago. Faculty members and students preached in various churches and collected money and covers from the churches. Some church committees also promised to allot a certain amount of money to the building fund. More churches are hoped to be covered in the coming weeks.

The finance campaign in the CSI churches of the Karnataka Central diocese has also started and several faculty members will be preaching in different churches of Bangalore this Sunday. We appeal to the alumni and friends of the college to inform the college of possibilities of such visits in your own dioceses.
