If you are coming in at the last minute or late, please make sure you are muted otherwise you will be disturbing all others during mass coming in and then trying to settle yourself up. Best advice is to come early before mass begins!!
These are live interactive services done for the very first time probably anywhere! We hope you will appreciate them. They are not for the broadcast of the parish, people or the priest. But an attempt of the parish at the service of one another, the church and the world in these very trying times!!

This week, 3rd Week of Easter - Prayers and Readings for the Masses
Kindly note that there is no day mass on Saturdays, as we hold the Sunday Vigil mass on Saturday evening.
Why do we celebrate it? What is significant and why is it important.
- To enter into the true meaning of his suffering what it meant to him. Why did Jesus submit himself to such cruelty!
- One with his spirit praying with him for the needs of the world
- Triumph of the cross - stumbling block to some, folly to the gentiles, but to those who believe, its life giving!
- We enter into the sacramental communion with him, who is our Saviour and our Life.
Why do we celebrate it? What is significant and why is it important
- Christ the Light of the World - The Risen Lord, dispels the darkness in our lives. Brings clarity, meaning and purpose to our otherwise obscure life and living.
- Christ the fulfilment of the scriptures and all human longing - Its not simply a mythical story or an imagination, or a wanting for a happy ending of the story of Jesus. Believers cooked it up
- Christ gives his life and make us share in his life - It is true not just for yesterday, but for today and tomorrow.
- Christ calls the whole church to the table which the Lord prepared for his people through his death and resurrection. Now this table is not simply eating and drinking but life giving at its best humanly possible as was on the cross.
