As we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of our parish, this time we will not be celebrating the parish festival. Instead we have organized programmes every Friday with the 6.15 pm mass followed by short cultural treat in front of the church until the grand finale in April 2017. We humbly appeal to your generosity to support your church financially to cover the expenses of the various jubilee events. Boxes are placed at the entrances of the church for your voluntary contribution. Jubilee candles and other mementoes will also be made available for your take.
