On January 8th Father Mike Davis and Father Shaji Silva celebrated the 11 AM Mass together to mark the Feast of the Epiphany and the joining of the Indian Latin Rite Catholic Community with ABVM. Later that day, members from both communities attended the blessing of the new Prayer Garden and celebrated this special day with hospitality in the church hall.
Members of this Community previously shared space with St. Thomas Aquinas parish and have now relocated to Assumption for their worship and social activities that include Sunday Mass at 3 pm. This Latin Rite Mass is usually said in the Malayalam language but on the second Sunday of each month the mass is said in English. Attendance at this Mass fulfills the Sunday obligation for any ABVM parishioner.
