Founder & Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Santo Catholic Mission

Academic and
Professional Profile

Being born and raised in a low-income family in India, John’s journey through higher education was certainly a challenging one, requiring intense dedication and perseverance. As his parents had just primary schooling, he had no one to guide him in his studies during the early years of school education, yet he dreamed of securing higher education, which was rather regarded as an 'impossible dream' for a poor carpenter's son like him. Though the Little World where he grew up often reminded that 'big dreams are not meant for the poor', he found extreme happiness and joy in chasing down 'impossible dreams in life'.
One of the key reasons for that extreme courage was his very powerful faith in his beloved friend Infant Jesus and the Holy Mother of Jesus since his early childhood days. He always believed that They would give him the capabilities to make it to the finish line. This confidence paired with politeness towards everyone who helped him along the way made all the difference in getting where he wanted to be. His professional designations of CPA-CGA from Canada, ACCA from UK, MBA from England, Master's Degree in Commerce and Bachelor's Degree in Commerce from India have been a result of hard work and dedication coupled with many years of learning. He believes that his life will be an inspiration to others who are striving towards similar goals.

Catholic Profile and

Growing up in a devout Catholic household in a small town in India , he was blessed with the opportunity to learn and practice all of the prayers and teachings of the Catholic faith from an early age. Inspired by the real-life stories of many Catholic saints, he presumed the Holy Mother and St. Joseph as his spiritual parents and Infant Jesus as his best friend from childhood. He was especially devoted to praying the Holy Rosary daily – a practice that remains close to his heart. This has been instrumental in leading him through life’s tribulations and helping him in finding comfort in times of suffering.
He was baptized in St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church, Aroor, Alappuzha, Kerala, India, in September 1984; it marked the start of a life-long journey in which his commitment to the Catholic religion continues to be the center of his life.
