Dear Parishioners,

 

I would like to thank you and your family for your generous

contribution towards the Community Welfare Fund. You must be

well aware that the purpose of the Community Welfare Fund in

our Parish (according the guideline of the Archdiocesse) to reach

out to the Parishioners in the following ways:

Parish Maintenance, to carry out Parish Activities

 

The poor, weak and helpless would be cared for

 

No one would go to bed hungry at night

 

No child would be deprived of education because the parents could

 

not afford the fees

 

No one would die for lack of medical aid.

 

I am happy to tell you that through your contribution, various

needs of our parish like SCC's and association's activities,

Catechism, have carried on, many poor are helped to have a decent

living, children are educated.

 

At the outset i want to thank you all for all the contribution

received from you. And as the last quarter of the financial year

2011-2012, want to remind other's to contribute 1% (or more) of

their income. This will enable us to reach to the last year collection

ACTS 15:22-31
Thought of the day
    May 24 2019 Friday of the Fifth Week of Easter Lectionary: 289 Reading 1 ACTS 15:22-31 The Apostles and presbyters, in agreement with the whole Church, decided to choose representatives and to send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. The ones chosen were Judas, who was called Barsabbas, and Silas, leaders among the brothers. This is the letter delivered by them: "The Apostles and the presbyters, your brothers, to the brothers in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia of Gentile origin: greetings. Since we have heard that some of our number who went out without any mandate from us have upset you with their teachings and disturbed your peace of mind, we have with one accord decided to choose representatives and to send them to you along with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, who have dedicated their lives to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. So we are sending Judas and Silas who will also convey this same message by word of mouth: 'It is the decision of the Holy Spirit and of us not to place on you any burden beyond these necessities, namely, to abstain from meat sacrificed to idols, from blood, from meats of strangled animals, and from unlawful marriage. If you keep free of these, you will be doing what is right. Farewell.'" And so they were sent on their journey. Upon their arrival in Antioch they called the assembly together and delivered the letter. When the people read it, they were delighted with the exhortation. Responsorial Psalm PS 57:8-9, 10 AND 12 R. (10a) I will give you thanks among the peoples, O Lord. or: R. Alleluia. My heart is steadfast, O God; my heart is steadfast; I will sing and chant praise. Awake, O my soul; awake, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn. R. I will give you thanks among the peoples, O Lord. or: R. Alleluia. I will give thanks to you among the peoples, O LORD, I will chant your praise among the nations. For your mercy towers to the heavens, and your faithfulness to the skies. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; above all the earth be your glory! R. I will give you thanks among the peoples, O Lord. or: R. Alleluia. Alleluia JN 15:15B R. Alleluia, alleluia. I call you my friends, says the Lord, for I have made known to you all that the Father has told me. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel JN 15:12-17 Jesus said to his disciples: "This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another."
