Dear Parishioners
 
If you were not sure of a place in the church for a mass, worry no more.
 
You are welcome to the 9AM mass on Sundays.  There are extra space available at the 9AM mass.
 
Should you require a group mass to celebrate an anniversary or other special occasions, let me know.  I am happy to accommodate your requests.

God bless you!

Fr Thomas Kurunthanam
