A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are close to my heart!

 

The month of May always a special month to me.  There are two reasons.

Month of Mary

First. As a child and still today, it’s a Marian month.  The month of May is Summer back home.  All the educational institutions will be out.  We will be on our holidays.  Every evening our Blessed Mother as a decorated statue will be carried in the streets of our village – carrying her on our shoulders praying the rosary and singing the songs of our Blessed Mother.  The whole village will be in two lines walking in the streets praying the rosary.  Awesome memories  Cherishing them ever fresh in my memories.

My Ordination

The second reason is it’s the month the Lord God Almighty accepted this unworthy servant, me, into His ministry as a priest. May 10, 2004, was my precious and holy day.  It was my ordination day.  Please pray for me that I will be ever faithful to my calling, to my Lord, and to our Holy Mother Catholic Church.

Request for May

May I request you in this month of May, to spend some time as a family praying the rosary.  I thought maybe every day one family could recite the rosary and we will try to “live” stream them.  I will talk to our tech person about it if it’s needed I will call the families to collaborate in this mission.

Many Thanks!

I would like to thank the core group of people who will be calling you or called you already to connect with the parish.  A big thanks to them for their time and for their effort.  God bless them.

Your Checks Are Safe

Some of you were also concerned about the checks that you sent to the parish and which have not cleared.  We have them here at the parish safe and sound.  The banks are closed hence we were not able to deposit them.  Please continue to support the parish and send the envelopes.

May God Bless You All.
Please Stay Safe and healthy!
Ever at your service.

 

– With lots of love and blessing,
—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

What’s the Eucharist?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1324-1327), states, I take pride in quoting it all the time. Each and every word has to be underlined. Every word accentuates the importance of the Eucharist:  “The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit’…
