Make sunday Qurbana the centre of your week
Dearly beloved brothers and sisters
On behalf of our parish family I wish to extend a warm welcome to you on visiting our website.
Give praise to the Lord, for he is good; His mercy endures forever (Psalm 118:1). These words, written by the psalmist millennia ago, are still relevant today. We as SyroMalabar Catholics, but especially as a parish family, are invited to consider what God’s peace and mercy means to us. I am proud to say, we are a vibrant, growing and engaged community with over 120 registered households/ families.
Holy Family SyroMalabar community is a wonderful parish, packed with many activities, full of life, and people who are pursuing their full identity as a son or daughter of God within His eternal family, the Catholic Church. Together we pursue wisdom, love and holiness by cultivating compelling encounters with Jesus. By His grace we will answer His call to become the saints of our modern times.
May we continue on the journey together, assured of God’s mercy and forgiveness, growing in our faith as we develop into a community that inspires and empowers all people to follow Jesus Christ by: “keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2). We do this by living the Word of God, celebrating the sacraments especially the Eucharist, calling one another to prayer, and fellowship radiating the light of Christ in all we do and say.
Please let yourself encounter Jesus here at Holy Family and join us in the great adventure of Christian discipleship. This parish website is an excellent way to help us strengthen and sustain our growth as a parish family. We grow in our faith as a community, not only by coming together on Sundays for celebrating the Holy Qurbana but also through various ministries.
May God bless you,
Jamesachan (Fr.James Nirappel)
Vicar, Holy Family Syro Malabar Catholic Church
