Church Picnic

From Achan:

Dear Friends,
I once again welcome you to our parish picnic. (Today June 24, 10.30am to 4pm)
We have Mass, Novena and Benediction at 9am.

Those who bring breakfast may arrive before 11.30am. Once the dishes are empty, please remove them into your vehicles.

Please do not let the kids wander into the woods as there could be animal ticks which are infectious.

Let's all be in one place the whole time and kindly do not gather as small groups throughout the church grounds.

An expected contribution to defray the costs is $20 per family, and $10 per person.

Also please do not conduct any type of fundraising during the picnic. If any one has an idea about fundraising for charity, please let me know, we can support you on another occasion.

We have a huge tent set up for our comfort. Rain ☔️ is already over, I think. So, if you are in town, get out and enjoy the day!

I take this opportunity to thank and appreciate our 4 trustees, the Co-chairs: Thomas Chacko and Liju JOSEPH and all youth and adult volunteers who worked very hard for many days to get this done and also will be serving us today.
Have a lots thanks fun.

PS: Tug of war will be conducted before lunch.

Have a safe and great day!

Your in Jesus,
Thadeus Achan

Tonight's Open forum is cancelled, but tomorrow Wed, will have at 8.30pm

Dear Friends,

We will have only one open forum about our "Church Building" this week.
That's tomorrow, Wed, June 21 at 8.30pm in the social hall.

Anyone, who has attended or not attended the Pothuyogam is welcome to attend for basic information or further comments and clarification.

Please use the double door on the ground level, but not the church main entrance.

Tonight's meeting is cancelled due to a Rockland priests' gathering that I am supposed to attend this evening at St John's in Piermont.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

If any one suggests that we should have more open forums for all/most people to get a chance, I welcome it; please feel free to let me through a reply.

Remember, our Church Picnic is this Saturday, June 24, 10 to 4pm. We can meet and chat there too!

In Jesus,
Thadeus Achan

Today's Pothuyogam- Parish General Body

Dear Parishioners,
For the better convenience of all of you, we will conduct the meeting right after Mass in the church. Thereafter lunch shall be served for all in the hall downstairs.

I want all children and youth above the 3 grade also to be present. It is very important that the next generation will participate and remember this historic gathering.

There will be four wireless microphones available for you to use to participate in the discussions.

For those who are unable to stay/ attend today, I will conduct open forums on Tuesday, June 20 at 7pm and Wednesday June 21 at 8.30pm in the social hall.

My wish is that every member of this parish must be able to know all the facts and figures and also be able to give your valuable suggestions as to how to pay off the price and acquire this 17.7 acres of land and this 36 year old church facility which we loved so much to enjoy using since 2012 May. All details in my knowledge will be presented before the Pothuyogam.

Parish Council:
Next Sunday, June 25, there will be a parish council meeting to finalize and ratify the above subject.

Wishing all the fathers a very happy Father's Day,

Yours in a Jesus,
Thadeus Achan
