Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021

Dear Parishioners & Visitors,

May this Christmas be more than just a season; may it become a way of life for us.
May the little Child whom we contemplate in the manger, watch over all the children of our parish and the entire world, as well as vulnerable and discarded persons. May all of us receive peace and consolation from the birth of the Saviour, and in the knowledge that we are loved by the one heavenly Father! May Jesus be really re-born in each one of us this Christmas. Merry Christmas!
