Welcome back again to the church for our community worship.

It’s extremely scary that the number of people affected by the virus is on increase. But we have to deal with it and learn to live with it of course safeguarding ourselves from the virus and from fear. The State and the archdiocese making all the efforts possible to take good care of the people. May God bless them all.

Now, understanding the emotions of our people, we have a plan to celebrate the masses inside the church.

As the pastor, here I am trying to my maximum to keep you all safe and secure that you may all continue to enjoy good health. As we move inside the church, for our common good, I am forwarding below guidelines to be followed. It’s again for the good of the community. May I request you all to follow them.  If there is a need, we will change them. It’s not a problem.

If you are sick or if you are elderly or if your health is not the best, please remain at home. We will pray for you. We will continue to live stream Mass. May God bless you.

Every week as we profess our faith, we express… “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic
Church and THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS.” The author of this letter to the Hebrews wrote. “Therefore since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and the perfecter of faith.” (12.1-2)
