LUCEAT LUX VESTRA CORAM HOMINIBUS
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE MEN
St. John’s College has an incomparable identity. It is a lighted lamp set on the mountain to illumine generations with insights, to eradicate the darkness of ignorance, poverty and evils; and to pave the way to equip the individuals and the society of a remote mountainous area, with the standards of modern life. It is the fulfillment of one of the towering aspirations of the Malankara Major Archi Episcopal Catholic Church. The educational development of the region justifies her existence. Educational service as a process for transformation and integral growth is inspired by a vision of human kind and the rest of the creation and its destiny drawn from the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
We, the St. John’s members commit ourselves for the promotion of Justice, social development, value formation, preservation of the integrity of creation, private and public life, national integration, tolerance and respect for all religions, responsible use of cybernetics and mass media, fostering the wholesome and simple life-style, combating the ill effects of corruption, violence, drug abuse, criminalization and powerlessness of the marginalities, particularly of the women.
This college stands for academic excellence, development of skills and character formation based on the love of God and service of man as modelled in Jesus Christ, with a view to producing “intellectually mature, morally upright, socially committed and spiritually inspired” men and women of India.
