Jerry Amaldev show, Vidyarambham, Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, Mass time change

Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ,

JERRY AMALDEV teaching us a song on Alphonsa
This Sunday, at 11.45am, the great music director, Jerry Amaldev will teach us a new song on St Alphonsa before our Mass.
Welcome all to come early and learn from the master!

Also this Sunday after Mass along with me, Jerry master also will participate in the Vidyarambham (Ezhuthiniruth) "Initiation into learning" of our little ones after the Holy Mass.

Sing, New York with, Jerry Amaldev
I cordially welcome all of you once again to the Jerry Amaldev music night on May 29, Friday at 6.30PM at Clarkstown South HS in West Nyack. I heard that several of our parishioners are not aware of this great and unique event. 
Tickets will be available after Mass this Sunday, or call me at 845-490-9307 at my cell number. 

The show will start exactly at 6.45pm and there will be no dances or public meeting/speeches/MCs etc. Jerry master will do all the talking! At 6.45PM Jerry Master will be formally introduced through a short video. Thereafter there will be a three minute welcome. Right away  American national Anthem will be sung with Jerry master accompanying on piano. The traditional light will be lit and without a word spoken, and the first song "Athappoovum nully" will begin. 

I personally guarantee that the show will be entirely different from our Stephen Devassy's in June 2014. This will feature Jerry Amaldev's smooth and melodious songs from his Malayalam movies from 1980 onwards. This show by its very nature and conception will not be noisy at all. (Any band would normally be noisy. Ours is not a band) I assure you that this is going to be the one and only show of this nature conducted by Jerry Amaldev and featuring 12 piece live orchestra, and excellent singers who trained under Jerry master since April 28. A group of our kids selected by Jerry master also will sing on stage. 

So much of preparation and hard work has been put into the making of this extraordinary music night. We have already filled around 750 seats and we expect a sold out show as we had with Stephen Devasy's band last year. Last year, lots of our parishioners could not get seats as they waited for the last minute. Reserve your seats and you can pay at the counter. Make a phone call or approach the help desk.  Four members of a family can watch the show for just $75 and there are individual tickets for $40 and $20. This is going to be the best artistic work I have ever had the opportunity of being part of the organization. Do not miss out on this rear live show.  Let us go back to the 80's, 90's and 2000's nostalgic, beautiful, melodious and most different movie songs of the beloved music director of all Malayalees of all times! Especially the Ayiram kannumai and Mizhiyoram!!!!

Please note that as it has been announced and seen in the church calendar, on June 7, Sunday, our Mass schedule will change to 11.00 AM. 
From June 7th onwards, at St Boniface church, there will be only one morning Mass on Sundays; (at 9.00AM)

Eucharistic Procession for The feast of CORPUS CHRISTI (Body and Blood of Christ)
On June 7, Sun, at 10am, we will have a Vishudhakurbanayude Pradakhinam (Eucharistic Procession and Benediction). All are welcome to join the procession and receive the special blessings. It will take about 45 minutes and thereafter we will have our first Mass at 11AM. CCD will start at 10.45am and the English Syro Malabar Mass will be at 12.30pm after lunch.

Thank you for all cooperation and support in my ministry as your priest!


Much love,

Thadeus achan
