Parish Priest's Message

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am happy to express my joy during Holy Season of the year namely Christmas. The Birth of Jesus reminds the mystery of God’s love for each one of us. The Christmas and Crib go together. Let us approach the Crib in faith & discover the Saviour of the world.

The Celebration of Christmas without sharing its joy with poor and abandoned is incomplete. The Church is cared for the poor and abandoned. Works of charity are more beautiful than any flower.

I wish each one of you a Happy Christmas and prosperous New year 2018.

Yours sincerely in Jesus Christ
