Dukrana 2016 : Pastoral Letter of Mar George Cardinal Alencherry, Major Archbishop

My dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, This is the time when the Universal Church is celebrating the Year of Mercy. Let me express my joy at the observance of this Year of Mercy by all our lay faithful, priests, the religious and bishops. Holy Father Pope Francis has published the Apostolic Exhortation “The Joy of Love” in this Year of Mercy after the conclusion of the two synods on family life in Rome. Our faithful are receiving by now new directives and reflections through the writings of the bishops and of other members of our Church with regard to the renewal of family life.

Kairali Nikethan Youth Festival Results (Music, Elocution etc.)

Pray for Rev. Fr. Tom Uzhunnalil for his release - called by Cardinal Cristof Schönborn and Cardinal Mar George Alencherry

Fr. Tom is a Salesian priest abducted by the same terrorists who killed the Missionaries of Charity sisters in Yemen.  Prayer requests are made by Cardinal Cristof Schönborn and Cardinal Mar George Alencherry for his release.


It is important not to sensationalize these stories and rumours, yet equally important is the need to pray for Fr. Tom facing persecution and martyrdom at the hands of anti-Christian and others

“Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
