O God, who have taught us to chasten our bodies for the healing of our souls, enable us, we pray, to abstain from all sins, and strengthen our hearts to carry out your loving commands. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

VISITATION OF ST. PETER'S PARISH (II)
The picture above was taken on the Saturday evening of the Parish Visitation after a delicious Asian-style supper served in the gymnasium extension of the Chapel of St. Peter Parish and shared with some members of the Parish Pastoral Council and the Finance Committee.
The Saturday evening anticipated Mass for the Lord's Day was followed by a musical homage to myself and Fr. Kerslake by the pastor Father Vayalil and two associates in music. Similarly at the close of the Sunday morning Eucharist (a combining of the two Masses as is done on the last Sunday of the month) a musical postlude was offered for our pleasure, followed by a reception in the hall where I was able to greet many of the parishioners.
Herewith some images from the Visitation:
