FROM THE DESK OF THE VICAR


MARCH, 2018



That the Son of Man must be de-livered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise (Luke 24:7)


Dearly Beloved in Christ


Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.


I extend my Easter greetings to everyone who all have been experiencing 50 days of lent sea-son. We should always able to remember in our heart that our Lord has risen from death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation of the Christian faith. Without the resurrection, the belief in God’s saving grace through Jesus is destroyed. As a church we must move forward to witness and experience the risen Lord in this world.


As we know the spring season has started. Thank God for His beautiful creations and different seasons of nature. All nature is
waiting for beautiful summer and all trees and plants are waiting for the new and beautiful flowers and leaves. Always nature is

telling us praise God for His wonder and we also have the responsibility to produce newness in our life.


As a church we must build ourselves as a true faith community.  This is my prayer that our prayer groups should be more active

than now. Prayer groups are the pillars of the church, the sub-committee which selected the general body studied about the

rearrangement of the prayer groups. Last general body approved their primary suggestion that we must increase the prayer groups up to seven which includes below 30 families in each group. List of the new prayer groups will be publishing as soon as possible. I urge everyone’s corporation in this matter. As a faith community we must go forward for the glory of His Kingdom

With prayers,
Rev. Anish Thomas Thomas
