A Sincere Word of Thanks.

“The Lord has done great things for us,
Oh, how happy we are’’ (Ps. 126:3)

These words ring loud and clear in my heart as I write these words of gratitude.
My dear Brothers and Sisters,

The curtain on the year- long Centenary celebrations of our dear Bejai Parish has come down with a fitting Finale on Sunday, 14th October. All of us were active participants of this historical event.
May heart goes out to each and every one of our parishioners for their whole – hearted cooperation and active involvement. I am immensely grateful to all of you, because you have a big share in the grand success of the celebrations. I keep on record my deep sense of gratitude to my Brother Priests, Fr Anil Roshan Lobo, Fr Ferdinand Gonsalves, Fr. Richard D’Souza, the Vice President, Mr. Augustine Rodrigues, the Secretary, Mrs. Charlotte Patrao, the Gurkars, the PPP Members, the various committees headed by their chairpersons, our office staff, Mrs. Rehna Nazareth and Mrs Preethi Pinto, the sacristan, Mr.  Pramod Lobo, the Security personnel, Mr. Michael Saldanha, Mr Simon Miranda, Mr. Oswald D’Souza, the Hall Manager, Mr. Denis Valento and the staff, Shivappa, Geetha, Manjula, Superiors and Members of the four Religious Communities, Heads and staff of three Educational Institutions, and a big number of volunteers.

I have a word of thanks and appreciation to all the artists who have performed so well on the stage after long and regular practices. The St Francis Xavier Liturgical Choir led by Mr. Joel Pereira needs a special mention for their melodious and devotional singing, topped by a flawless rendering of the classical and world- famous chorus, “Halleluia,” which won the appreciation of the entire crowd.

My dear Brothers and Sisters, I am eternally grateful to you for being a part of this event in every way possible. I request you to continue your support to the parish specially by building a vibrant faith community. Let the fragrance of Bejai Parish, like that of the jasmine flowers, spread far and wide for the Glory of God.

Thank You, Thank You, God bless you.

Fr. Victor Machado
Parish Priest
