Do not be afraid
This Sunday, the reading from Matthew 14:22-33 describes Jesus walking on water while the boat on which his disciples journeyed, was battling with a heavy sea. The boat on the sea is one of the earliest Christian symbols for the church in its journey through the world. Just as the boat is tossed about by the waves, so is the church encountered with challenges. However, in the midst of crisis, Jesus comes to restore peace and harmony in his church with his assurance, “Courage , it is I; do not be afraid”. As we resumed public Mass at St Dominic’s, we are allowed to celebrate other Sacraments. The First Holy Communion Children will receive the Holy Communion in September as well as RCIA candidates, will receive the sacraments of initiation. This is a big step in this period of living with Covid-19. Furthermore, we will need to plan for Confirmation at our parish after these celebrations. Baptism is celebrated as request is received. Although it is a challenging time for our parish, let us look up to Jesus and pray as Peter prayed, ‘Save us Lord’ so that our gathering in the church will help us to hear Lord’s comfort “It is I, do not be afraid’.
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.
Following advice from the government and eparchy, along with completing a full risk assessment our mission will have its first public mass on 2nd Aug 2020.
