From the desk of the Parish Priest...

My dear Parishioners,

As we are on the threshold of the New Year 2015, I take this opportunity to wish each one of you a Very Happy New Year 2015. As we look back that the Lord has taken care of our family, and the Parish Community, for which we are indebted to him. As we begin the New Year, we have many plans & resolutions related to our family, business etc. Above all its our common desire, that we come closer to the Lord. During the New Year we require to grow in faith prayer life, Life of Charity & Service. In one word we are required to make all the effort to be true children of our heavenly Father. God has given many gifts and He will continue to give us his Blessings. Among the many Blessings that God has given the gift of “TIME” is a precious. It is said “Time is money”. We are called to invest our time Spiritually and Materially to acquire both spiritual and temporal goods. Let us be rich in the sight of God.

               

                Parish is a growing community. We have two important projects for the welfare of the community.

 

1.       The Annual Retreat: As already informed, the retreat begins on 1st Sunday of Lent (22.02.2015) Rev. Fr. Anil Dev, from the Diocese of Varanasi will preach the word of God. This is the greatest Blessing, the Lord has offered to our Parish Community. Let us accept the Retreat as a Blessing from our Lord and participate in it. The preaching will be in English. Please Block the date (22nd to 25th Feb 2015) in your personal diary to attend the Retreat.

 

I appeal to you in the name of the Lord to attend this Retreat and obtain everlasting treasures from the Lord. I also request you to bring your friends and family members.

 

2.       The College Building Project: As you know, we have taken up the College Building Project. The estimated cost is Rupees Ten Crores. The Building work begins from January 2015. We appeal to you, as children of Mother Mary, let us join hands together and contribute generously to the project. Your good will and your prayers will help to complete the project as per the schedule – within 15 months. Milagres Educational Institution have its own contribution to the education of the people of Milagres and to the City of Mangalore. Our elder’s, majority of them had their Education at Milagres. This is the God given opportunity to support the project. This appeal is not only to the “Alumni” but also to the Parishioners. I am confident that with the Co-operation of the Parish community the Project will be realised. All the Donations will be duly recognized by the Institution.

 

Finally I take this opportunity to thank each one of you for your whole hearted Co-operation during the last year & let us make this New Year 2015 Spiritually fruitful not only for ourselves but for everyone. May our Heavenly Mother, Our lady of Miracles Bless us all.
