Harvest Festival

We had a fun filled Harvest festival last Sunday and raised  ~$55103. Despite all the difficult situation we are in, this is a powerful demonstration of strong commitment to our parish. I sincerely thank all of you for actively participating in the Harvest festival.  

I also want to appreciate and sincerely thank Soney Jones, Satish David Abraham, Abraham Panicker, Don Samji, Koshy Chacko, Jobin Abraham, Thomas M Thomas, Teny Kurien and Manoj Mathew for working behind the scenes to make this go seamless. They even had a mock auction to practice with Zoom.
