Dear Friends in Christ Jesus,
Greetings in the New academic Year.
The summer vacation for our children is over and they are back to the school. We wish them all the best for the year to do their studies well.
We are glad that our New Asst Parish priest Fr. Joy Vathaloor is with us. We wish him good health of body and mind to carry on the ministry in our parish.
We resume the various meetings of animation for the liturgical and prayer groups. May I invite as many as possible to join these groups to further enhance the life of the parish and your personal life.
Pope Francis has called the special Jubilee year for mercy to begin this Dec. 8, the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council. It will close on Nov. 20, 2016, the day celebrated that year as the feast of Christ the King.
"The experience of mercy, indeed, becomes visible in the witness of concrete signs as Jesus himself taught us," states the pope. "Each time that one of the faithful personally performs one or more of these actions, he or she shall surely obtain the Jubilee Indulgence."
Let us prepare ourselves for this great year ahead and try to understand the mercy of God and come closer to him through the sacrament of reconciliation and other means to experience the Love of God .
May God bless all our families.
