The 28th of November, 2020 was a great day for the SFS parish, Thirugokarnam. It was on this day that the new presbytery and grotto of Mother of Sorrows were blessed and opened. It is a long awaited time for the people of SFS Parish, Thirukogarnam to have a separate home and office for the parish priest. With the grace of God and the support of the local parishners and the donors from abroad, the dreams of many came true. Now our parish campus is filled with msfsness with St. Francis De Salas church, Mother of Sorrows grotto and Peter Mary Mermier house for Priest. It is a very happy occasion. We thank Most Rev.Dr.M. Devadoss Ambrose, the Bishop of Thanjavur, who blessed the new presbytery and Mother of Sorrows grotto. Rev.Fr.K.Ignacimuthu Msfs, our provincial superior opened the presbytery and then the grotto was opened by Rev.Fr.J.Stephan. After the blessing and opening, provincial presided over the Eucharistic celebration, concelebrated by many of our MSFS fathers and diocesan priests. We wholeheartedly thank all the donors for their contributions, MSFS Congregation for their support and prayers, the parishners for their involvement and prayers and workers for their sincerity in finishing the work on time.
