1. St.Thomas Syro Malabar Hartford Annual Collection: As decided by the Pothuyogam, each family is expected to make a contribution of $600.00 towards our annual collection (pledge money) for future Church building projects. The participation of ALL parishioners are essential for the success of this effort. I am happy to note that some have already contributed the due amount and some others more amount towards the purpose. Please prayerfully consider completing your pledge by December 31,2015. Thanks a lot for your sincere and wholehearted co-operation. “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).

2. Ten Days of Rosary: October is the month dedicated to the Holy Rosary. We celebrate the 10 days of Rosary from Friday October 2 to Sunday October 11,2015 at the Church of Saint Helena. Those who would like to sponsor any of these days please contact me or the trustees. Please join at the Church to pray the Rosary for the sole intention for our future church and all the efforts fulfilling that goal. The schedule is as follows:-
Monday to Friday: 6.00 pm Holy Mass followed by Rosary and Benediction
Saturday: 6.30 pm Holy Mass followed by Rosary and Benediction
Sunday: 4.15 pm Holy Mass followed by Rosary and Benediction

3. Congratulation to our Newlyweds: We wish to congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Rijoy ( Christina ) Augustine who got married last Sunday at the Syro Malabar Mission Hartford. May your years ahead be blessed with good health, happiness and peace.

4. Rev.Fr.Kurian Ammanathukunnel MST, Director General of the Missionary Society of Saint Thomas,India,will be the main celebrant in the Holy Mass for this Sunday September 27,2015.

5. Charity Fund: September 27 is the memorial of St.Vincent De Paul who is known as the “Great Apostle of Charity”. Let us use this occasion to remind ourselves about the great work of charity and commit ourselves to help others in need. As per the decision of the parish council our Church is starting a charity wing and we are looking for a name for our charity. Please forward your ideas to me or the trustees as early as possible.

Wishing you God’s Blessings,

Fr. Joseph Pullikattil
