A Message from Father Nathan
My dearest people who are all close to my heart! Prayers and blessings to you.
The Mysteries of our Faith.
As the Lenten Season has started please make all the efforts possible to participate in the liturgy and other pious activities of the church. These are the ways and means we are able to understand the mystery of Christ. The suffering, the cross, and the death of Christ are all the mysteries of our faith.
We cannot comprehend this with our reasoning, but we are called to take it and relish it with our faith.
Every Sunday the church beautifully leads us to celebrate this mystery of our faith. Let us be faithful to this. It’s one of the beautiful events that the Holy Mother Church offers us to celebrate each and every year. Let us make good use of it.
Archbishop Charity Drive – The ABCD Update
I wanted to remind you again about OUR Archbishop Charity Drive, the ABCD time at hand. We need to do better. We are not doing our best right now. I do understand the situation in which we live in. It’s an extremely difficult time and everyone in the world suffers from this.
Amidst this situation let us remember we are all blessed with so much! Let us share our blessings with the least fortunate.
Please, may I request you to prayerfully consider and support it?
Prayer + Acts of charity
Let us remember and pray for each other. Let us try to do many acts of charity and gain the grace of God. Please spare time for your family’s prayers. It’s one of the best ways we can connect ourselves to God. God bless you all.
Please continue to pray for me and for the spiritual growth of the parish. And continue to ask God to bless you.
Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,
With love and blessings,
—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

Praying a rosary has been a tradition in the Church for a long time. Praying the rosary is such a powerful means to reach Jesus. The rosary is the vehicle for Mary to intercede to her Son Jesus. It’s an extremely powerful weapon and Catholics need to hold it in their pocket at times.

At the Easter Vigil, the Exsultet is sung as Mass begins in darkness, illumined only by candles throughout the church. The Exsultet is a beautiful hymn of rejoicing in Christ’s triumph of sin and death.
