Assumption of Blessed Virgin Mary

With great and immense joy, the Church celebrates the solemnity of the Assumption of Mary on 15th August. The solemnity commemorates Mary’s bodily resurrection and glorification of our Lord at the end of her life.

The word Assumption comes from the Latin verb assumere, meaning “to take to oneself”. Our Lord, Jesus Christ took Mary home to Himself where He exists. Assumption of Mary is the dogma which was proclaimed by Pius XII in his  Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Deus, in which this perennial truth was solemnly defined: “By the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and by our own authority, we pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory”.

LONG LIVE MY INDIA!

Let’s all be proud of our beloved Nation. We all have to collectively strive to make India vibrant, strong and supreme.

Wake up fellow citizens! It is Independence Day… it is the day when the nation celebrates the victory of the struggles of our freedom fighters, so that we may breathe free from foreign domination – the British Rule. It was a daunting task requiring a long arduous and relentless struggle. Hence the day assumes great importance and ought to be celebrated with due respect to those leaders who were in the forefront like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Asaf Ali, Rani of Jhansi, MangalPandey, B.R. Ambedkar, Jawarharlal Nehru, BalGangadharTilak and hundreds of others. These were the pioneers who gifted free India to her citizens. Read more

GOD BLESS OUR PRIESTS

There is none that hasn’t felt the impact of COVID-19,be it as individuals, families, the economy, the governments, schools, the rich, the poor migrant workers rendered jobless & homeless-the list is endless. We have seen it all and we have felt it all. We are all in this together.

Slowly but surely, along with other places of worship, the universal Church felt this impact. Commencing with the Holy Water & Hymnals being withdrawn; receiving the Eucharist on our hand; in no time we had the actual closure of Churches/Chapels. There was an immediate sense of loss of a sacred part of our life.A miracle happened for us when Bishops streamlined morning Mass daily, joined later by other Parish Priests. In addition, spiritual inputs were relayed to us in the evenings, which people admit, increased their knowledge and faith. Read more

Immunity Boosting

The buzzword in the last few months has been “immunity boost”.

Ever since COVID struck the world, more than 6 lakh people have been struck down with a death blow and lakhs more infected; recovery in most cases has largely been dependent upon the human natural self defense – the immune system.

From pills to vitamin supplements, hand sanitizers to face masks, the market has been flooded with various products claiming to protect or boost immunity to a level that may protect against this deadly virus. Read more

Easter Message from the Parish Priest

Dear Parishioners,
Time flies by so quickly. Since the beginning of Lent season on Ash Wednesday where we enthusiastically began with a long journey of 40 days of prayer and penance, little did we think that the situation would change so drastically, that we would almost live the biblical days of the Old Testament and slowly move on to the New Testament. On the night where the Hebrews would set out for freedom, they had their last meal. For the supper they would kill a lamb and smear the blood on their door posts. Whoever house the blood of the lamb was not put, that night the first born in the family would die. Even the mighty Pharaoh’s first born son was killed that night. The angel of death knew no preferences and differences. Read more

No Masses

As  a preventive measure for CORONA VIRUS, There will be no masses/events in the church for the general public, but the priest will celebrate mass daily for the intentions of the parishioners. This will continue till further notice.

The masses will be live telecast-ed on our YouTube channel daily at 7:00 am and on Sundays at 7:30 am
