The Facade of our New Church, built in 1976. This is visible as you pass on the Marve Road.... and very often you can see and hear what is going on in the church...so near it is to the roadside...

Statue of Our Lady of Lourdes in Church

The statue of Our Patroness - Our Lady of Lourdes- occupies a prominent place on the sanctuary facade. Our Patronal Feast is celebrated on 11th February, every year. Our Lady is the succour of many an ardent devotee and a Mother indeed to all of us- parishioners and clergy...

May the Lenten mysteries increase our Love for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. May Holy Week be a gracefilled one for all.

The Fathers of the Parish wish all our dear Parishioners a VERY HAPPY AND GRACE-FILLED EASTER. May the peace and joy of the risen Lord, bless you and your loved ones, contribute to our efforts at building community around his Word and make our parish a “vibrant community, centered around the values of

Jesus Our Lord….”

Our School Building

Our Parish School is named after St. Anne - the Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The school feast falls on 26th July every year. Our school has pioneered education in the locality and is in demand for quality education, far and wide. The school also has a Junior College attached to it.

This year our school secured 100% results in the SSC Board examinations.

Our school boasts of a big playground, which has been the launching pad for many a University, State, National and International sportsperson.

VALENTINE’S DAY = APPRECIATION DAY.

      - Fr. Austin Norris.

This is a beautiful day for lovers and friends and all those whose lives are enriched and strengthened by warm and caring relationships. There is the practice of sharing gifts, flowers, chocolates and greetings cards amongst lovers and “close” friends. A beautiful way of expressing and reciprocating love… 

 

In the light of the Pope’s Message for Lent, by incorporating the Elderly people who live amongst us, perhaps we can shift from our narrow focus of celebrating Valentine’s Day to include ALL THOSE WHO LOVE US AND CARE ABOUT US – Parents, Grandparents, the Elderly and Friends at large.

 

All of us can do with a gesture of APPRECIATION & LOVE. So go ahead… and share gifts, flowers, chocolates and greetings cards with ALL those who care about you and love you for what  you are and who you are to them.

 

VALENTINE DAY IS NOT ONLY FOR LOVERS

BUT ALSO FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOVE-US
