Dear Parishioners

Greetings and love to you and your family. I am happy to share with you the following information:


I am happy to inform you that we have a new secretary for our parish office in the person of LIZY PORATHUR.


Our new working hours for our parish office will be on Tuesdays to Fridays from 9.30 am to 3.00 pm with half an hour lunch break. Office is closed on Mondays. I have reduced hours to save some money for the parish. Our Sunday’s collections are low due to COVID-19.

I wanted the office hours from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm with one hour lunch break but our new secretary made a request that she would like to attend the 9.00 am Mass everyday at St. Cecilia’s and said that half an hour lunch break is enough for her. I accepted her request. So, the new office hours are from 9.30 am to 3.00 pm. The lunch break will be from 12.30 to 1.00 pm.


We did not have whole day Adoration on Fridays due to the COVID-19 restrictions. We started to have half an hour of Adoration every Friday from 9.30 to 10.00 am after the 9.00 am Mass. I did only half an hour because I must be in the Parish office at 10.00 am as we did not have a secretary. Since we have a new secretary, I want to extend the Adoration to ONE HOUR every Friday. So, we will have Adoration from 9.30 am to 10.30 am on every Friday after the 9.00 am Mass.


I would like to THANK Jemima and Joshua for designing and doing the weekly e-bulletin. They really did a wonderful job. Thank you and God Bless you.

I am sending you this week Homily.

Have a wonderful weekend with your family.

Good day. God Bless.

With love and prayers

Fr. Paul Raj
