Our Parish Bulletin - 'Heart to Heart' serves as a means of communication within the parish, helping to announce the events and to report about the various undertakings in the Parish; it is also a testimony of God's wonderful deeds amongst us in our parish through the workings of its various cells / groups / associations / communities. Besides circulation within our parish (one copy per family), the bulletin is also sent to the Dean, Bishop etc as reports. Spiced with humour, information to good health, interviews with leaders within the Parish, message from the Parish Priest, articles for spiritual growth, and a corner for the children, the Heart to Heart is published four times in a year, viz. during the Easter, Feast of Sacred Heart of Jesus, Feast of Nativity of our Lady and Christmas. Each issue focuses on a theme. The editorial team works within a scheduled timeframe and also takes into consideration the economics of publishing the bulletin. You are welcome to send your suggestions to improve the quality of the Heart to Heart.
Warm Greetings To You, My Dear Parishioners!
The traditional Easter greeting of ‘Happy Easter’ still lingers in my heart even now – although as the days go by it becomes weaker and weaker. But that is how it is in life, isn’t it? We can feel elated over special events and the feeling stays with us for quite a while until it finally fades away. I believe that is how it is with happiness as well. At first, the feeling can overwhelm us and then gradually it fades away.
Edward Hays, a Roman Catholic priest tells the story of a janitor during his seminary days who, every Friday, would greet each student saying: “Well, Happy Sunday!” Hays writes, that when he remembers the janitor, he regards him as one of those rare individuals who is content with life and who knows the taste of happiness. Happiness is the gift that grows from contentment. It comes when we are content with what has been given to us and with what we have achieved with our God given gifts.
For an Eastertide reflection, may I suggest that we take time to appreciate all the sources of happiness that are ours today . Be grateful for good health, shelter, clothing, good friends, family and that most precious gift of all: LIFE. Well, Easter is the feast of Love glorified and also the feast of New Life. It is when we appreciate what a gift it is to be alive that happiness will follow.
