Today is the Sixth Sunday of Easter. We are in the novena in preparation for the Feast of Mary Help of Christians which will be celebrated next Monday 25 May.

May is a month of special devotion to our Blessed Mother Mary. This year we are reciting the rosary at our grotto every evening at 6:45 pm. We can show our love for Mary by joining this devotion in greater numbers and also attending daily evening mass during the holiday season. For those who cannot attend the grotto rosary it will be nice to recite the rosary in our families.

On Sunday 24 May there will be the First Religious Commitment at 8 am of 8 novices of the “Daughters of Mary Help of Christians” from SHTC and at 6:30 pm of 13 novices of the “Salesians of Don Bosco” from STI. We thank them for their active contribution to our parish in catechesis, mass animation and other services during their years of novitiate and pray that they will grow in fidelity to the Lord who has called them. Hence, please note that there will be no morning mass on Sunday 24th May. All of you are invited to the Sunday evening Eucharist at 6:30 pm here in our church.

Please assist the collection of monthly Church support done through volunteers who sit outside the parish office after the Saturday evening mass and the Sunday evening mass.

We are happy to announce that thanks to the generosity of many parishioners the grotto deficit has been erased. The balance amount collected of Rs. 18,478/- will now be forwarded to the Church account and used for the maintenance and beautification of the grotto. Please see the notice-board for details.
