Notices for May 2017
7th May 2017
The closing mass for the MAGIS Youth will be this Sunday at 10.30 am. Please do come.

SUMMER FUN CLUB for all ages begins on Wednesday 10th to 27th May from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Kindly see the banner for details and register in the Parish Office.

After discussing the matter at the PPC, our SCC Communities and other forums, we have received unanimous approval to shift our Grotto. Considering your suggestions, the Grotto will now be relocated on the pump room. The relocation will be done in phases and will take some time. May Mary guide us.

The PPC has strongly requested that no cars be parked near the side doors of the church. This is causing inconvenience to our people, especially the elderly. Accordingly we will be barricading this area to prevent parking. Only a CHALLENGED DRIVER may bring his/her car near the door.

With the number and size of cars increasing, there is no way that the church parking space is going to be enough. Please consider bringing your car to church.

The parish wishes to thank the Core Team of the MAGIS, the Divine Child School and all the youth who participated. May you continue to do GREAT THINGS FOR GOD.
