St John Vianney Syro Malabar Mission
GOD IS WITH US
The fourth Sunday of Advent proclaims the good news, Emmanuel: God is with us. In this week’s Gospel, Joseph is
called ‘righteous man’. He is righteous through the extraordinary decision of listening to the voice of God rather than the letters of
the law. Joseph ‘took Mary as his wife’ and followed the voice of the angel. The ‘righteous deed’ of Joseph brought Jesus into our
world and we can celebrate Christmas, God is with us. Christmas once again brings to our minds that through Jesus, God became an
everyday reality in our lives. God is with us through the Word and the Sacraments.
Let us celebrate this great joy of Emmanuel: God is with us, by joining one of the Christmas Liturgies in the parish. I would like to
thank you all for your support and collaboration in the life of the parish. It is with gratitude that during this season of grace, I
remember all our volunteers who share their time, talent and treasure for our parish family. May baby Jesus bless you with his smile.
I wish you all a Blessed Christmas as you celebrate the joy and peace of Christmas with your loved ones. Let us continue to walk
together, as we embrace the New Year “2020” with hope and confidence to proclaim to the word and to discern what we can offer
our parish in the new year, ‘I bring you good news of great joy, a Saviour has been born to you, Christ the Lord (Luke 2:10).
Welcome to St John Vianney Syro Malabar Mission
St. John Marie Vianney Syro Malabar Mission (JMV Mission) is a Catholic community constituted largely of Catholics from Kerala, India living in south west London. This Mission is part of the Syro-Malabar Eparchy of Great Britain which has its Sea in Preston, UK. The uniqueness of this centre is that we are consisted of those migrant people originally from Kerala, who wish to cherish their Tradition and Liturgy, and nourish their Faith while assimilating the Catholic ethos experienced in our socio-religious context. Moreover JMV Mission aims at facilitating unique context for children and young people to assimilate and grow in the Tradition, Liturgy and Faith of the Syro Malabar Church. In view of this we have arranged Holy Qurbana (Mass) on every Second and Fourth Sunday of month, and Catechesis after the Holy Qurbana. Our mission is to Grow and Help to Grow.
Warm welcome to JMV Mission if you live in or around South West London. Let us celebrate what the First Christian community lived, “They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers“ Acts 2:42.
