BEC SS1 St Joseph

BEC SS 1, was one of the oldest BECs started in our Parish, with a small number of families, in the early part of the year 1980.   Over the years, the numbers grew rapidly to 132 families in this area to become the biggest BEC Group in our country, covering all the lanes, streets and roads from SS 1/1 right up to SS 1/43.

We celebrated our 25 years Silver Jubilee on April 03, 2005, with the celebration of Eucharist Service in the old Chapel followed by dinner gathering.   Being one of the first BECs, we were honoured with the visit of our Archbishop Murphy during one of our gatherings.   Immediately after this, arrangements were made to split into two groups, SS 1 St. Stephen and SS 1 St. Joseph, during our AGM in October 2005. 

BEC, SS 1, St. Joseph was fully commissioned officially with the working Committee on April 12, 2006 with the following office bearers:

CoordinatorJames Devaraj 012 223 4941
Secretary:Mary Raj
Treasurer:Geraldo Gomes
Committee:John Fernandez, Alfred d’ Silva, Charlotte Kandasamy & Mary Xavier
