My dear parishioners,
As our country is going through a health emergency due to COVID-19, the Cardinal has sent us a pastoral guideline to follow. Please read it from our parish website or from the archdiocesan website.
Please note some specific information pertaining to the operation of Martin of Tours Parish,
Services completely cancelled until further notice:
- Weekday & Weekend Masses
- All organizations and group meetings
- All programs, practices and rehearsals
Church open from 9.00 a.m to 5 p.m for private prayers and devotions
Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m.Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon
Priests will celebrate Holy Mass every day privately for the requested intentions.
All other parish operations will be taken place as per the general guidelines of the Cardinal. As we go through the days of mental and spiritual suffering, let us focus on the Lord who suffered silently. During these trying days let us not get overly concerned rather listen to the voice of the Lord “Do not be afraid; I am with you until the end of the days” As this state of emergency brings some extra time in our lives, make use of it for some personal or family prayer, read and reflect Bible, use Formed.org to learn more and strengthen our faith. The Lord himself goes before you; and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8. Let us completely cooperate with the state bylaws and guidelines to protect and care for each other. If you have travelled, sick or unwell, kindly accept self isolation. Let us care and pray for each other.
Fr. Gijo Muthanattu George, Pastor
