Secretary’s corner

We have come to the end of the year ant let us thank God for all the blessings He has showered upon us as individuals and as a parish. Let us uphold all our parish members in His hands and cry out for His mercy and care in the new year. We are fortunate to celebrate another Christmas and join the millions of believers throughout the world. In the midst of all the turmoil and crisis, difficulty and problems, war and terror cries, fear and tension, come the message of Christmas with all its hope, goodwill and cheer. This heralds the entrance of God in to the human history. It is heaven coming down to the earth, word becoming flesh. The prince of peace, the wonderful counselor and the Lord of all took flesh and incarnated as one of us. He is Immanuel and let us adore Him.


Our election is over and new team of committee members is taking charge in 2020. The new trustees will take charge on the first of January 2020 and others as per our constitution. I take this opportunity to thank our outgoing trustees (Mr. Varughese P. Varughese and Mr. James T. Philip) for their valuable services and a job well done. May God bless them abundantly.


Let us participate in all the Christmas and year end services with prayer and dedication and enter the new year with new hope and expectations.


Sincerely,
Your's in His service 


Secretary
Jose.
