Dear Readers, Parishioners and Well-wishers,
It’s indeed a great pleasure and joy for all of us especially to the faithful of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour that we are marching a head with our horizons. Certain things, activities or works are possible through human hands but with the advent of social media these certain things, activities and works are manifested to the outside world and they have been made known to everyone. In the Bible, the book of Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
The above words are true as we see the progress of our parish. Nirmalapadav Parapady is a small parish having minimum transport facilities and the people here depend on farming and agriculture; yet God’s mighty hand, works through various ways in executing His plans. We have moved a step higher by launching our own website. This is made possible through our parishioners. The church played great role in educating the poor and today our own children have realized it and they have come up with gratitude to do something to the church. I congratulate all of them who are working behind this great venture.
The new website will provide all our readers with detail information of our church and its activities. Isaiah 43:18-19 says “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Likewise this website will open up various avenues of our activities.
On this mode, on behalf of our Parish Pastoral Council, Finance Committee, and Parishioners I thank our web designer Mr Vincent Mascarenhas, the web sponsor Mr Avil D’Souza and all those who are instrumental in this task. I wish all the readers to benefit from this site and cherish the beautiful memories of our parish activities.
Fr Vincent Lobo
