Message from Chaplain

Your Attention please !


Dear respected members of the Malayalee Catholic Community Vienna,


I would like to bring to your concern and care of the tragic situation in Kerala due to heavy rains and floods. Mar Stephen Chirappanath has sent to me a message today of the grave situation there. He has requested that all the Syro Malabar units in Europe must observe Sunday 19th August as Prayer Day and give their financial contribution to the most needed people in Kerala. This can be done through the Syro Malabar Centre in Rome.


In view of the request from Mar Stephen, I would request all the members of the Malayalee Catholic Community to observe Sunday 19th August as a day of prayer in your families. We shall offer the Holy Mass and Adoration for this intention on next First Friday 7th September from 19.00 to 20.30 hrs in the Stadlau Kapelle. As per the request of Mar Stephen, I would request all Malayalee Catholic Families to give your generous contribution to the Project of Flood Relief in Kerala through the agency of the Syro Malabar Apostolic Visitation in Rome. I would request all the MCC Parish Committee Members and Members of the Laity Representative Forum to collect the contribution from the Malayalee Families in Vienna and give it to the General Convener, Assistant Chaplain or Chaplain of the Malayalee Catholic Community. The collection will be received till Sunday 16th September 2018. The contribution will be transferred on 17th September to the Centre of Syro Malabar Apostolic Visitation in Rome. We shall all pray for the suffering people in Kerala
