Secretary’s corner

Dear friends,

June was a memorable moth for us. We celebrated our 39th parish day and 3 of our children became active communicants of the Church through First Communion. We were blessed by the presence of our Thirumeni and Diocesan/Bishop’s Secretary Rev. Manoj Idiculla. We honored all our graduates, our milestone birthday members and one family that celebrated 50 years of wedded married life. It is nothing but God’s abundant mercy and blessings. We extend our prayers and congratulations. VBS for children also went well.
