Catholic Vocations

A blessing to the parish and the family

I was told that St. Don Bosco, founder of Salesian Congregation, used to say that vocation is a blessing to the parish and to the family. The reason why I am sharing is that I feel God has blessed my family through my vocation to the priesthood. I have one more cousin who is a Nun in a congregation.

I have another happiness to share with you that I have one more cousin who going to be ordained as a priest on December 27, 2023. The whole family is delighted about it, and a great amount of preparation is going on at home.

I’m Flying to India Immediately Following Christmas Masses

Hence right after the Christmas Masses, I will be on the flight on Christmas night. I will be there on the 27th morning and the same day, the ordination celebration is going to take place. I must be there, just because I have vested him. I feel privileged and delighted about it. I will be gone for a month. I have already made all the preparations for while I am gone. Everything at St. Gabriel should go smoothly. So, if you want to meet for any of your concerns, here I am until Christmas Day.

Christmas Preparation

We will have, as usual,

Christmas novena starting on December 15th in preparation for Christmas every day at 4:00 p.m.

Let us all prepare ourselves worthily. Spiritual preparation is also so important as we focus on external preparation.

On Saturday, December 16 I have invited the Cardinal Gibbons school students to come and sing for the 4:00 p.m. vigil Mass, as well as singing carols right after the Mass.

Hence come prepared to stay at the church to enjoy the carols that will be sung by the students.


Excluding our ordinary time of confession, we will have confessions on the 20th and 21st during the Novena from 4:00 p.m til 5:00 p.m. on both Wednesday. and Thursday and Friday we will have confessions right after 8:00 a.m. Mass until 9:30 a.m.

Please make good timing to go for a good confession. Let us prepare our hearts and home for the coming of Christ our Lord

With lots of love and blessings,

Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,

— Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

The First Fridays Devotion also called the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a Catholic devotion to offer reparations for sins, which had its origin in the apparitions of Christ at Paray-leMonial, France, reported by Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in the 17th century.
