Dearly beloved in Christ, Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
First Sunday to be observed as Parish Mission Sunday. Mar Thoma Church is a missionary church. We are entrusted with a mission by our Lord Jesus Christ. That mission is to gain others by giving up our lives for him. Mar Thoma church has mission fields all over India and Nepal. Our diocese has Mexico mission and native mission. Our support is essential for continuing the work.
Second Sunday is the Sunday for the differently abled. They are highly talented and gifted people. Mar Thoma Church has several institutions which takes cares the well-being of the physically challenged. Let us remember the differently abled people in our society and may God grant them strength to live for God’s glory.
Third Sunday to be observed as the Yuvajana Sakhyam Sunday. Youths are the pillars of the church. They are blessed in this nation and they are the best tool for the mission of the church. We need more full time ministers and I hope that we will get more youth members for His ministry.
Fourth Sunday the church is meditating upon the theme Family. Family is the gift of God. In the context of separation, we should take extra step to cater the family especially the children. The parish auction will be held on October 1st, October 22nd and November 23rd. Requesting whole hearted participation from all. The Parish convention will be held during the last week of the month. Convention is a time for renewing of our life and getting more power to move further in our spiritual endeavor. I request your prayers and participation. May the Almighty bless our parish
