MAPS is named after Fr. Mathew Alakalam, one of the founders of MCBS. He was a zealous missionary of austere life and was attuned to the voice of the Holy Spirit. He was a stalwart of his time, left indelible impressions in the hearts of the people he served. He was so lively and vibrant and could add life and beauty to every sphere of life. A powerful preacher and teacher of his time, he made recourse to all the available means to spread the good news of the kingdom of God.

MAPS is committed to follow the footprints of its patron, keep aflame his zeal and dedicate itself to fulfill his dreams.
