Sandesanilayam, the Archdiocesan Catechetical Centre is deeply aware of the fast growth and tremendous change in the technology of communication. The new technologies have influenced our culture with “new ways of communicating, with new languages, new techniques and a new psychology. (Redemptoris Missio.3 7: Aetatis Novae II)
