This week I would like to place my thanks and appreciation on record for the amazing work you have done for the installation Mass and reception. Under the leadership of our parish secretary Joanita Miranda and celebration Chair Mr. Joseph Remedios all staff, ministries work together and made that a great evening. My heart-felt thanks to all of you. As I jokingly said that evening, with the installation, I have become ‘official’! Now, I must work hard; honeymoon time is over, ha ha ha… Therefore, may I request you once again, your valuable prayers and support to serve the Lord and you – His special and chosen people.
Many positive comments were heard that our Church looks beautiful and well kept; must admit that, it is a team effort especially because of a new staff member Mr. Emmanuel De Paiva who has taken his custodial job very joyful and responsible. The washrooms, halls, offices, the plants, and premises are well taken care of. It’s a lot of work for one person. Therefore, I encourage all ministries and groups always to lend a helping hand by putting things back in order after use. Thank you for your gentle caring support to each other and our parish.
The month of November is dedicated to remembering and praying for our loved ones who have gone before us for eternal reward. Please make use of the book of remembrance and all souls envelopes placed near the altar. They will be remembered in our Masses. Our Solemn Mass of Remembrance, which we used to do in November will be celebrated together with our parish feast on Saturday, December 1. Please check the details in the notice board regarding St. Francis Xavier Feast day Celebration.
I wish you all a blessed week.
Fr. James Cherickal, Pastor
