We have a new marble statue of Mary Help of Christians in our church in keeping with the marble statue of St. John Bosco, patron of our parish. Being a Salesian parish and to spread the devotion to Mary as help of Christians as wanted by our patron St. John Bosco we have this new statue. Hence we have temporarly moved the existing old statue to the front foyer of the hall. We sincerely do not intend to offend anyone's feelings with this change. Just in case, you have some concerns or queries, feel free to express them to your pastor Fr. Raja or to any of our PPC members who will decide on it in their next meeting. Thank you.
