Dear Parishioner,
Great Morning.
Let us congratulate and pray for the 14 Parish Children who were elevated as communicant
members of Church last Sunday through First Communion. Let us pray for the 3 Altar Boys
and 2 Covenant Girls who will be serving Parish. Praise be to the God for all his grace.
Thank God for leading us magnificently during our Parish Convention & Parish Day. Thank
you to each and every one for your service for Parish in various capacities, may you be
richly blessed by heaven. We also take this time to deeply appreciate the first
communicant parents for serving fellowship lunch.
Our joyous Carol Rounding is beginning in two weeks’ time, on November 29th Saturday. May
this Christmas bring added blessings, joy and hope in our life and life around us. Parish
is looking forward to visit all our homes, proclaim the birth of our savior Jesus and
rejoice with your family. Let us continue to uphold our Parish in personal prayers.
