The initiation of Malawi mission in 2018 is sign of missionary dynamism of our province. In this short span of 3 years, we have taken up two parishes and extended our pastoral ministry to thousands of Catholics. The Plans for the expansion of the ministry are in progress. However, the Malawi Mission needs more personnel as well as financial help for its sustenance and growth. As you know, the country Malawi ranks among the worlds least developed and as one of the poorest nations and about 90% of the population are living in rural areas. Even a small help, would mean a greater support for this people.
Fr. Berin and Fr. Nelson, who were on holidays in India from 7th Dec 2020 to 15th Feb 2021, had a plan to visit our own parishes and make a mission appeal to the faithful of our parishes. We had visited and celebrated Mass in 4 parishes and raised Rs. 1, 17, 280 for the mission of Malawi.
|1. St. Francis De Sales Parish, Thirukkogarnam||Rs.30, 500|
|2. All Saints Church, R.S. Nagar||Rs. 60,000|
|3. Infant Jesus church, Machuvadi, Pudukkottai||Rs. 13,140|
|4. Sacred Heart Church, Pudukkottai||Rs. 14,140|
Besides these, one family from our St. Francis De Sales parish has promised to take up all the expenses to build a church. There are other sponsors, who have promised to help us in the coming years.
We would like to place on record and thank from the bottom of our hearts, all the Parish Priests and the fathers, who helped us to achieve this great help. We also would like to thank Fr. Provincial and his Curia for their support and encouragement. Please, continue to pray for Malawi Mission and support it in all the possible ways. Let us continue to build the Kingdom of God and spread the goodness to the ends of the earth.
