From the desk of the Parish Priest
Greetings of Peace, Joy and Love,
Glad to be connected to you again after some time. Currently we are preparing for our Annual Parish Feast, the Feast of St. Jude Thaddeus. This year our Novena Masses are from Friday, 21 – Sunday 30 October, 2016. The programme can be found under the heading ‘NEWS’ in this webpage. The themes for the Novena Masses this year are reflected from the Easter Vigil Readings. These themes and readings will help us find our God who is merciful and compassionate at all times. We hope with these we will be able to contact and even more intimate relationship with our merciful and compassionate God and we in turn do become merciful and compassionate like him.
The parish has also after a long time delay in realising the building of the New Church has now come together to make it possible in the near future. After a long delay in getting things in order we are now in the process of tying up knots firmly and legally. At the rate we are going we hope to start building by the middle of next year. Financially, we have raised about RM4 million and the rest is still in your hands. At the present moment we are not able to determine how much we really need to raise as we have not come to that stage. As we are now connected through this webpage we will keep you informed and updated regularly.
While we are in the process of building the physical new church, we are also working towards the building of the spiritual church.
As the present Parish Priest, I must say that the Church of St. Jude Thaddeus, Rawang is but a warm, friendly and hospitable parish. As such feel free to visit us or make a pilgrimage to our parish any time of the year. We will within our means organise sometime that will be spiritually enhancing and memorable for you.
Wishing you and your family the Peace, Joy and Love of Christ.
Inspiring Hope, Faith and Mercy
Fr. David Arulanatham
