Nineveh Lent (Moonu Nombu) and Retreat

The fast of Nineveh is a three-day lent recognized by the Orthodox Church, which begins Monday, January 22nd and lasts until January 24th. During this fast, we remember the three days Prophet Jonah spent in the belly of a large fish as penance for his disobedience to God and the atonement of the sinful city of Nineveh.

During these three days, we should look at our lives and show remorse for our disobedient natures and follow in the footsteps of Prophet Jonah and the people of Nineveh. As with all other fasts/lents of the Holy church, the fast of Nineveh is observed by refraining from the intake of meat products.

There was Sandhya Namaskaram on all three days and a retreat was organised on 24th January, the last day of the lent at 9:30 am. Holy mass was also offered at 6:30 pm on the last day of the lent.

December 19-22, 2017

Christmas Carol Programme

The Christmas Carol Programme was held from 14 to 22 December with one day dedicated to each Prayer Area. We had an enthusiastic lead in our Vicar, who visited all the homes this year. It was a joyous experience with the choir groups singing and glorifying God while Santa Claus regaled the children with his goodies. Though the house visits often extending late into the cold nights, it was a truly warm experience and we were able to take the glad tidings of the season to the homes in our parish.

Blood Donation Drive

The youth movement organized a blood donation camp in our church after the Holy Qurbhana on 8th October from 11 am to 2 pm. A team from Jehangir Hospital facilitated this camp. In our Vicar's words, blood represents life and donating blood is like donating life for a person in need.

The event started off with our Vicar, Rev. Fr. Sajeev Varghese, inaugurating the event and registering himself as the first donor. Tinu Thomas gave the welcome speech. We had around 30 members who came up to participate in this noble cause. Out of these, 17 were found suitable for donation. All these 17 members were given a token which they can use to reimburse a unit of blood from the blood bank at Jehangir in the future. The event concluded with a vote of thanks by Donny Peter.
