WELCOME TO CHRIST CHURCH!!
Here are 2 photos of Christ Church, a Tamil speaking parish, where I'm serving as Vicar. If God wills I will be here for about 2 years. And then return to Bolivia.
Christ Church is probably one of the very few, it could even be the only, Tamil speaking congregation which has a high proportion of middle class and professional Tamils.
The first Sunday service, a traditional eucharist is at 8 am; a small punjabi congregation meets later at 10.45; an english speaking service is conducted at 5pm and an outreach to Tamil workers culminates in a 7.30 pm prayer and praise.
The usual midweek meetings and activities coupled with the church's kindergarten keep the place humming.
There is much to be done in the parish. I have a busy schedule and only God's grace keeps me afloat!!
