OUR PARISH RESPONSE TO COVID 19 PANDEMIC
  • The Holy Mass is offered every day at 9.00 am – the congregation will join the Mass in spirit. As you can’t participate in the Mass at this time of pandemic, you can still reach out to our Blessed Lord by making a Spiritual Communion in prayer. [Please use the Spiritual Communion prayer given below.].

Spiritual Communion [Prayer of St Alphonsus]
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar. I
love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come spiritually into my soul so
that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen.



  • There will be no replay of the Mass during the Paschal Triduum

  • A message from Fr Antony is available here New

  • An update regarding the First Holy Communion Programme is available here New

  • At least Once in Two Days: kindly adopt a person who is lonely or in need and call them at least once in every two days. If you can, I encourage you to pray the Holy Rosary over the phone with an elderly person who lives on his/her own. If you wish to find a ROSARY COMPANION, please give me your contact details
