Vicar’s Message

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

A very warm welcome to our Parish website, the online face of our Parish. Hope you all will find the information given as helpful in your journey of faith.

We are called to participate fully in the life and mission of the church. This mission of the Church is rooted in the mission of Christ who commanded everyone, clergy, religious and laity to “Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every nation” (MK 16:15).

Our Parish community is focusing on this mission of Christ and commit ourselves to be a community that:
worships God in spirit and truth, creates and nourishes Christian community, proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ, teaches the saving message of Christ, serves all our brothers and sisters particularly the poor, and the needy.

Let us also listen to H.H. Pope Francis’ message to youth and children. “Are you looking for empty thrills in life or do you want to feel a power that can give you a lasting sense of life and fulfillment? Empty thrills or the power of Grace? It is not a thing or an object but a person, and He is alive, His name is Jesus Christ.

“Launch us on the adventure of Mercy. Launch us on the adventure of building bridges and tearing down walls, barriers and barbed wire. Launch us on the adventure of helping the poor, lonely and abandoned.”

“The Lord does not keep His distance, but is near and real. He is in our midst and He takes care of us.”May the God Lord Bless us all.
