  5. The Catholic values are being undermined by Secularism and Pentecostal churches.
  6. The Understanding of the faith is very shallow for most Catholics.

To all of you Parishioners, thank you for supporting the Parish in all ways. May Mother Mary, our patron saint, intercede for you and lead you to her son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Congratulations to you our dear children who have received the sacrament of Confirmation.  Thank you the Parents for encouraging the children and thank you all our catechists for preparing the children so well for the Sacraments. Our appreciation also goes to the organizing committee of this Parish day and all of you who have contributed and participated actively. The Choir members thank you for the beautiful singing that made the liturgy exceptional. Thank you and May the good Lord bless you all.
