Our congregation commemorated Lenten
season, Holy Week, and Easter with
traditional Church celebrations and
ceremonies. We walked the Stations of the
Cross twice each Friday; first with our
youth ministry SMYLE and second with the
rest of the faithful members. On Palm
Sunday, 03/25/18, our Priest, Father Joseph
Kachappilly, blessed palm branches by the
Grotto of our Lady and in a beautiful
procession all went back to the Church to
celebrate Holy Mass. Later on our annual
spring bazaar took place.
On Holy Thursday, 03/29/18, Father Thuma
Sheno washed feet of 12 members of our Youth
Ministry, SMYLE, and celebrated Holy Mass.
On Passion Friday, 03/30/18, Father Thuma
Sheno joined us in prayers as we
commemorated the death of our Lord.
As we reached Saturday of Light,
03/31/18, Father Joseph Kachappilly led the
Easter Eve Holy Mass celebration. Before end
of Mass the Gayyaza Drama took place; sub
deacon Kiryakos played the role of the
Angel, and Aram played the role of one of
the two thieves crucified with our Lord who
begged Christ to take him to Heaven. The
faithful present at the Parish were taken by
surprise by the amazing act of these two
members of our Parish. Later the Holy Mass
celebration continued through midnight.
We wish you all Happy and Blessed Easter.
