Fr. Abraham Mutholath and Fr. Michael Vettikkatt, the director of Kottayam Social Service Society (KSSS), agreed to build Mutholath Auditorium on the premises of Good Samaritan Center with the full financial support of Fr. Abraham Mutholath. Archbishop Mar Mathew Moolakkatt approved this plan on September 10, 2014 and laid the foundation stone for the auditorium in September 2014.
The purpose of building this auditorium was: To create an additional source of income for the Good Samaritan Centre, which was running a Deafblind programme with the support of Sense International. The auditorium would serve as a venue for KSSS activities and public events, and the rental income would help to sustain the Samaritan Centre. As there was a demand for an auditorium at Cherpunkal, the project had a good scope. It could also be a Silver Jubilee Memorial of KSSS.
The construction of the auditorium was guided by Vicar General Fr. Michael Vettikkatt, Diocesan Procurator Fr. Alex Akkapparambil, KSSS director Fr. Bins Chethalil and supervised by Fr. Sujith Kanjirathummoottil.
Major Archbishop of the Syro Malabar Church Mar George Cardinal Alencherry blessed and inaugurated this auditorium on 14th February 2017. His Grace Archbishop Mar Mathew Moolakkatt chaired the public meeting. Mar George Palliparambil, Bishop of Miao and Mons Joseph MLA were among the speakers.
