Pravasi MATRIMONY (http://www.pravasimatrimony.org/ ) is a Catholic matrimonial service provided by the Apostolic Visitator for the Syro-Malabar faithful residing in India. It is part of the pastoral initiatives taken by the Syro-Malabar Church to reach out to its faithful world-wide with various pastoral and spiritual servicesusing the new medium of internet. This Mission benefits mostly the members of theSyro-Malabar Community, who have moved to other parts of India and the world in search of a living.The matrimonial service directly benefits young men and women who are seeking suitable life-partner from their own faith and community to start a Christian family. Parents, who are eagerly searching for good brides and grooms for their sons and daughters can also make use of this service.
A Pastoral Concern
The goal of Pravasi MATRIMONY is not assisting people by just match-making, but assisting the faithful in finding a partner, educating the young men and women about marriage and family, providing spiritual and pastoral support through prayer, counseling, formation and online courses and resources.Pravasi MATRIMONY is committed to providing quality and cost effective matrimonial services, by creating a large pool of genuine proposals with accurate profiles. Pravasi MATRIMONY promises "widest choice and absolute reliability", true to its slogan. Pravasi MATRIMONY has the potential to grow into a meeting place for the global Syro-Malabar Community to gather and share their dreams, faith and life.
Marriage and Family for Stability of Church and Society
Family is the basic unit of Church as well as society. Good and stable families make a prosperous community and society. The very existence of Church and Society depends on the stability and strength of families. Power, positions, or wealth do not equip one with lasting joy, peace and prosperity, rather, it is the quality of relationship within family that makes one happy. A stable family can be built up only when a man and a woman, who share the same values, faith, culture and vision, get married. The strength of the Syro-Malabar Church comes from families who profess and practice Christian faith and values according to its tradition. But due to the increased movement of individuals and families across the globe, many young Syro-Malabar men and women find it hard to get a soul-mate of his/her choice, who will help him/her start a truly Christian family.
