Like every year, we have received “Lenten Campaign- 2013” tickets from CODP. The amount which is collected by sale of tickets will be used for the Diocesan Housing project on the occasion of Diocesan Post Centenary Silver Jubilee. Cost of each booklet is Rs.100, containing 10 tickets. One book for one family. Books will be given through the gurkars. Kindly buy the tickets and co-operate.

We had announced earlier that every family will contribute Rs 2,500 towards Centenary Celebration expenses. Let us not take this contribution as a burden on us.  It is our parish and centenary is of our parish and it is our privilege and duty to contribute our mite towards this cause and make it a success.   The ward Gurkars and representatives will come to your houses.  Please be generous to contribute towards centenary celebrations.

In this Centenary year, we have planned to stage a Konkani play based on the life of our patron Saint St Sebastian on Palm Sunday, 24th March at St Agnes Special School grounds. We will let you know the further details later.

This week we will carry on some minor repairs, inside the hall and at the entrance of the hall.  Please co-operation with us.
