Fr.

The Word of God has been described in various ways. Our lives should be like the magnifying glass which when held against the sun can burn a piece of paper, so also we should focus on the Word of God and influence people around us. Fr. Mahesh further said that the Word of God gives solace to the destitute an strength to the weak. We should ask questions to ourselves whether we attentively listen or read the Word of God and whether we follow the Word of God. Our faith and devotion to the Word of God should increase.


There was festive atmosphere outside the church. People were seen visiting the stalls. The ICYM Unit of the parish has put up  a special stall where visitors were expected to try their skills as well as luck to win prized articles.
