Sep. 7 : Novena of Mother Mary- 9th Day: Todays intentions are to pray for our neighbours. When we are in need or in trouble the first person who can help when we shout for help is our neighbour.  Let us pray for our neighbours that we keep our neighbourhood in peace and love and make it a united group.

The Parish Priest V.Rev. Austin today highlighted the need of prayer before we take any decision or plan to do any decision in our life.  Jesus prayed whole night and then early morning called his Desciples and chose the Apostles.  Apostle is the one who is sent to give the good news.  So let us make sure that we too pray to God before we make any decision or start any task.  God will bless and guide us to make it successful.

Flowers showered iin the church portico and thereafter 4 kinds of sweets distributed to all.
