  1. One of the points that came up in the Parish Council was of having a Suggestion Box, which could be placed in the church.  If someone has a good idea, the person could drop the suggestion in the box.  The idea could be studied and if found practical and reasonable, it could be implemented.
  1. In the course of this week parish calendars will be given to each family in the community.  Together with the calendar they will also hand out an appeal for the renovation of the Church.  Many of you have made your contribution for which we are very grateful.  But the total amount from the dine and dance, the Andrean fair and your contributions come to around 50 lakhs which is far less then the estimate given by the heritage architect. Please help us by being generous during this Christmas season.
