Fr. Valan – Diocese of Vellore Mission Appeal Thank You

Dear Brothers and Sisters at St. Paul’s,

Easter greetings from your Fr. Val!

I have no words to express the outpouring of love that I have been receiving at St. Paul’s from day one of my arrival in May 2018 and even now, four years later.  It is more vivid with your selfless, incredible contribution toward the noble cause that my home Diocese of Vellore is undertaking for the faithful in need. The phenomenal response on your part is mindboggling. God bless your good hearts. I will be visiting India in May and I will certainly extend your love and support to the children, the seminarians, and the folks of my diocese. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our Bishop Felipe Estevez for his consent for this Mission Appeal, and to our Pastor, the Episcopal Vicar, Monsignor Houle, for his wholehearted support of this great cause in spite of the many needs of our parish. I also very particularly thank each one of you for making this Mission Appeal for the wellbeing of your extended family members in the Diocese of Vellore a great success. The Church is ever alive and will keep witnessing because of good hearted and generous faithful like you.

Yes, Christ is really Risen.

Thank you! Thank you!  Thank you!

With my humble regards and sincere thanks, Fr. Valan
